The whole frigging thing is hazy. And, I am no newbie - going back to
RH-7.2. Every friggin time I upgrade Fedora, something changes in
NetworkManager. Moreover, the relationship between NM and Network
Configuration is obscure at best. 

Now I am not getting the error message when I restart NM. And what the
frig is this? 

"<warn> connection(1) /org/freedesktop/NetworkManagerSettings/1 failed to activate: (2)
Device not managed by NetworkManager"

If that (/org/freedesktop...)is a path, it neither exists in the file
system nor proc.
