NetworkManager must be run as root since it needs to control network
devices.  NetworkManagerInfo should be session-managed now, so it will
restart when you log back in.

The NetworkManager stack should work like this:

1) NetworkManager gets started as a service at system boot time
2) NetworkManagerInfo gets started (by the session-manager) when a user
logs in
3) NetworkManagerInfo will exit after 10s and now respawn itself if
NetworkManager is not running, and the notification icon will disappear
