This is actually my fault as Debian maintainer of knetworkmanager.
Debian does not have pam_console, instead I use a group called "netdev"
to control the access to NetworkManager. For nm-applet.conf I correctly
changed the dbus policy but for knetworkmanager.conf I forgot to add
this Debian specific patch. Await a fixed knetworkmanager package soon
(together with NM-0.6.4).
