Hi Wireguard Community!

I think I found a small bug with Wireguard Windows Client. I made tests 
with version 0.3.14, 0.3.15 and 0.3.16 with the same behavior.

automatically open the tunnel on some conditions. The script runs as 

When the script starts, the tunnel is opened and the status is Active in 
the main Window but the stays off on the tray.

the good status again, but it disturbs the users.

It's probably the fact that two distinct users are involved. Is there a 
possibility to synchronize the status?

Thank you for this great VPN,
