"nmcli con" failed "Can't obtain connections: settings service is not running."

I have switched to use Network Manager, and sometimes I use the nmcli command line to manage my network connection. But I dont know why, since the last update of Slackware64-current (Aug 10, 2012), the "nmcli con" command does not work anymore. It shows "Can't obtain connections: settings service is not running." error message, although plasma-networkmanagement still works . I rebuilt the package with patch provided by this link[1], and now "nmcli con" works again as expected. Hope this will be fixed soon. Thanks

Yep, confirming this on latest -current. I can do "nmcli nm" and "nmcli dev" to check NM/device status but not "nmcli con". As patch indicates, it is a regression in nm_remote_settings_new().
