Jeff, you must be having a bad day.  I would normally not even respond
to this type of message, but you seem to be doing this a lot.
Your response to a posting for a problem that happen just this morning
is just rude.  We do not have the insight that you do to know that a
developer is working on a problem "right now".   I just did a cvs
checkout of the NetworkManager.  Compiled and installed it.  Guess what?
The same problem exists because I was stupid to not rpm -e
NetworkManager before installing from source.  But if I did that, then I
would not know of other dependencies that could happen.  I'm learning,
slowly, but I'm learning. 

If I wanted abuse, then I'd go down the hallway to the abuse department.
