I followed the advice given to get the version of NM from updates-testing,
and it seemed to work as suggested - I was able to tick the checkbox.

I haven't checked the version numbers, but something was downloaded
when I ran "sudo yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update NetworkManager",
so I take it there was a newer version there.
This was a few days ago; maybe that version is now standard?
