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.
