I wrote the KDE side of the offending code, I looked at it and the
ConsoleKit D-Bus policy, but I have no idea why D-Bus is now blocking my
messages (the policy looks OK). I asked for help from the ConsoleKit
maintainer (William Jon McCann) and from the maintainer who did the D-Bus
security fix (Colin Walters), neither replied yet.

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=475468 "knetworkmanager:
incorrect default DBUS configuration"
KNetworkManager is not the default in F10 (NetworkManager-gnome is the
default even in the KDE spin), but still everyone who switched to it now
has no working networking anymore (unless they revert and/or block the
D-Bus update).

And I know there's more of those, just search in Bugzilla.

The D-Bus policy really ought to be reverted and never touched again in F8,
F9 and F10. This should only be changed in F11 or even F12. The change is
just not ready for production use at all.
