[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: knetworkmanager
Version: 0.2.2-1
Severity: normal
Usertags: fdo-18961

knetworkmanager's D-Bus system.d config should be updated to fix
non-deterministic allow/deny for messages with no interface; the D-Bus
upstream recommendation seems to be that every allow or deny rule with
send_interface="..." should have a suitable send_destination attribute too.

In this case, this would make them redundant with the lines matching
send_destination="...", so they can just be removed (see for the Red Hat bug). is the D-Bus bug tracking
this; there have also been discussions on the D-Bus mailing list.
