Removing nm-system-settings.conf from /etc/NetworkManager folder fixes
NetworkManager daemon and wired connections are connected to
automatically when plugged in.  and 0.8.2 makes use of
NetworkManager.conf instead.  Removing that file, fixes the
NetworkManager daemon when it comes to wired connections.  However,
attempting to connect to any wireless or VPN via the applet, fails
here.  I'm getting the following while trying to connect to a vpn:

** (nm-applet:1168): WARNING **: <WARN>  activate_vpn_cb(): VPN
Connection activation failed:
(org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.PermissionDenied) No user settings
service available

And the following when I attempt to connect to a wireless AP:
** (nm-applet:1168): WARNING **: <WARN>  activate_connection_cb():
Connection activation failed: No user settings service available

Looks like 0.8.2 doesn't deploy a d-bus policy for plugdev group
anymore and expects polkit instead.
