OK. Let's leave it alone for now. We may want to revisit in a generic

No. That's a good idea. I'll try that. I suppose I could try gdb also.

Did you run it as root?
Actually I think most of it is working. With a right click on the
applet I can get it to run nm-connection-editor. The problem is that I
can't get it to actually connect to a device. When I run
both wlan0 and eth0 are "unavailable". Google doesn't help much.
Needless to say, getting wifi up via the blfs scripts works fine.
