This restricts the connection to a certain user, determined by the
connection.permissions property (see `nmcli connection show $NAME`
and `man nm-settings`).

This makes the connection only available, when a session for that user
exists. Is that user logged-in?

Did you build NetworkManager yourself? Is session-tracking properly
enabled to use systemd-logind or consolekit.

Starting NetworkManager with --debug is usually not that useful. The
most interesting thing it does is to turn on debug-logging, which you
can do  otherwise [1].
