With me, NM occasionally gets into a loop where it keeps asking me
for my encryption key.
I feel like screaming at it, "I've already told you 5 times
what the f-ing key is".
The only solution to this I have found is to re-boot.
(Even ctrl-alt-backspace, forcing a new login, does not work.)

Admittedly this only happens about 1 time in 10.

As far as I can see, NM is completely devoid of any documentation
that could conceivably help if it does not work.
The NM developers suffer from the delusion that their toy is infallible.
