Hi Morgan,

How different is the 0.7 interface for this call? Are there any other
issues with using NM 0.7?

Sugar Presence Service fails to connect to a jabber server, with the error in presenceservice.log being:
1224179059.306887 DEBUG s-p-s.psutils: Error getting NetworkManager devices: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.UnknownMethod: Method "getDevices" with signature "" on interface "org.freedesktop.NetworkManager" doesn't exist

This is because PS (Presence Service) works with NetworkManager 0.6.x, and not 0.7 which is in Intrepid. NM 0.7 has a different D-Bus interface for this call.

The failing call is to watch NM to see when we have a valid IP address. There is a fallback to manually check the IP address, but it isn't called if NM is seen on the session bus, so I have a patch to disable the initial check for NM.

debdiff on its way.
