When I disconnect the internet on any one of my many virtual machines (in this case Debian) via the wicd network manager, after about 10 minutes or so it's magically reconnected. This is very unpleasant behavior as I have internet bandwidth caps and can't have the internet on these guests connected all the time for a myriad of reasons.
I suspect it's KVM because many of the virtual machines I migrated from virtualbox and none of them had this behavior before now.
Is there any way to disable this periodic check? Maybe a workaround of some sort?
I have looked everywhere for some kind of information on the issue to no avail. It appears this is the right site for this issue although I apologize if it is not.
