There's this commit in the NM_0_8 branch:

      libnm-glib: better handling of missing user settings service
      If it's not running or we can't spawn it (it's not supposed to be
      autospawned anyway) we should just ignore the error and poke clients
      that we've tried and failed to get user settings instead of warning
      with an annoying message.

However, I don't see how that would muck up anything.

More importantly, I'm seeing this locally:

  Dec 17 19:43:43 liberty NetworkManager[2209]: <error> [nm-manager.c:1368] user_proxy_init(): could not init user settings proxy: (3) Could not get owner of name 'org.freedesktop.NetworkManagerUserSettings': no such name

Everything is working fine for me though, but I have all of my 
connections configured to be system-wide, so maybe that's why.

I think that page is an account of what's planned for 0.9, so not
relevant here.
