How do you edit the configuration files? If you edit them directly, that's a 
problem since GConf manages configuration via its daemon and can discard your 
changes. You should consider using gconftool-2 to edit the configuration.

You can simply dump a connection to a file:
gconftool-2 --dump /system/networking/connections/1 > myconnnection.conf

edit the file and then load it as a new configuration:
gconftool-2 --load myconnnection.conf

If there is an error in a configuration, nm-connection-editor should complain 
when reading it (see .xsession-errors or output on terminal).
