Description of problem:
It is no longer possible to change the zone of a connection using the firewall-applet.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click fireall-applet, the list of active connections is shown
2. Click on one of them, a dialog will be shown
3. Change the zone of that particular connection
The zone is not changed. When running in console I can see this error:
Traceback (most recent call last):

The zone is changed
I heard that Fedora is removing at_console from policykit. It was there in firewalld 0.3.9 but it isn't in the policy file anymore. Maybe that's causing the error as NetworkManager is running as root and the applet does not have enough privileges to change the zone. Seems like some authentication is needed?
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 22 development cycle.
Changing version to '22'.
