[blfs-support] Network Manager configuration

Anybody have an idea of how to allow a regular user (as a member of a 
dedicated group) to modify a wired connection's configuration? With the 
config file I've added to the BLFS Wiki (well, similar to that one, I've 
divided it up as I had suggested), 
http://wiki.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/wiki/NetworkManager I'm able to 
enable and disable the connections, but I cannot edit settings using the 
gnome nm applet on wired connections. I'm sure I'm missing something 
simple, but can't for the life of me find it. I've tried various changes 
to policies with no change. Also, clicking network settings from the 
tray does nothing...I have to open nm-connection-manager manually.
