nm-applet failing to run in xfce -current

(nm-applet:6288): GLib-GIO-ERROR **: Settings schema 'org.gnome.nm-applet' is not installed
Trace/breakpoint trap
That's the error message on trying to run in terminal. In KDE, on the other hand, the network manager comes up by default and works perfectly (is that nm-applet?).

This is a newly installed 64-bit -current, installed via the usb boot image, and everything else works fine.

Did a virgin install from 'current' (32-bit) yesterday - and had exactly the same problem (using xfce, but running nm-applet from a terminal)

There is a "network management" plugin for KDE which connects to the networkmanager daemon, it's not the same as nm-applet which is a gtk (gnome?) thing.

This issue has been identified by rworkman. The issue is happening during the of the package.
The current workaround is to perform the following:
/usr/bin/glib-compile-schemas /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas >/dev/null 2>&1
This will resolve the issue. I know Pat and rworkman have discussed it, and will get fixed.

Reading my logs, I see the discussion mentioning this occurs during fresh install of -current.
