  Scripts inside /etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d don't get executed

Status in “network-manager” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: network-manager

  As far as i know Network Manager runs all scripts inside
  /etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d when connecting to a network. But
  this doesn't seem to work. For testing i created a simple script

  #!/bin/sh -e
  echo nmtest >> /tmp/nmlog.txt

  and set the rights according to specs

  -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root   39 2007-12-05 22:33 02test

  But when i start network manager (my computer is connected to a router
  running dhcp via cable) nothing happens. /tmp/nmlog.txt stays empty.
  This looks like the script doesn't get executed when Network Manager
  opens the connection.
