Unable to get wlan0 to fire

Not sure on which package I need to bugzilla this under. I have a
feeling it should be NetworkManager, but I'd like to check as it may be
down to a PolicyKit failure (or even dbus).

My laptop is not firing up the wireless network. When I try and bring it
up from the command line I'm getting

Error org.freedesktop.NetworkManagerSettings.InvalidConnection: ifcfg
file '/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-wlan0' unknown

I've checked and the above file exists.

Googling hasn't showed much in what is the cause other than suggesting
both PolicyKit and NM being screwy.

Using rawhide on the laptop, kernel-2.6.34-0.38rc5.git0,
NM-0.8.0-10.git20100502, polkit-0.96-1. The laptop is using an intel

Help! I need to file a bug on this unless there is a quick easy fix...
