Hrm...  I get this in my logs:

Dec 17 19:43:43 liberty NetworkManager[2209]: <error> [1292636623.891805] [nm-manager.c:1368] user_proxy_init(): could not init user settings proxy: (3) Could not get owner of name 'org.freedesktop.NetworkManagerUserSettings': no such name

but everything still works.  I suspect that's because I have all of my
connections set up to be system-wide rather than user-specific though.

I saw your mail on the NM list, and I'll also reply there; let's keep
the rest of the discussion there, and perhaps reply here if/when it's
resolved.  I'll also try to do some more investigation.

That page details the plans for 0.9 - not relevant to 0.8.2.
