Windows: OpenVPN GUI does not show connection is not working

Description

When connected, right click of the green GUI taskbar Notification Icon shows the active connection with a highlighted check mark in a popup menu. If that connection is then lost, the GUI taskbar Notification Icon changes to yellow, the check mark is cleared, and the connection is retried. Unfortunately, that makes it difficult to stop the retry, since there is no indication on the right click popup menu of which connection is working. The work-around is to hover over the GUI taskbar Notification Icon to see what is going on in the tooltip popup. But it would be better to show any working connection in the right click popup menu, perhaps with a yellow highlight and no check mark.
