OK, here's what I tried.

Added ",keyfile" to the .conf. Rebooted. Accessed the connection editor 
and checked the box as indicated.  On apply, was prompted for a 
password. Without too much thought, gave it the root pw. That failed,
and now the daemon password checker has me on its list and won't give 
me a second chance. Drat!

Might have to do with policykit authorizations, but not obvious which!
