Description of problem:
Got a pop up dialog saying "The NetworkManager applet could not find some
required resources. It cannot continue.". It didn't seem to crash, though.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Here are the process that are still running:
cra 2954 0.0 0.7 61608 16044 ? S Apr 10 00:00:00 nm-applet
root 2407 0.0 0.0 4044 1308 ? Ss Apr 10 00:00:00
root 2428 0.0 0.0 15088 1956 ? Ssl Apr 10 00:00:00
It looks like these processes are left over from an older version of NM, since
it was updated on April 11:
Apr 11 11:29:46 Updated: 1:NetworkManager-glib-0.7.0-0.9.1.svn3549.fc9.i386
Apr 11 11:29:48 Updated: 1:NetworkManager-0.7.0-0.9.1.svn3549.fc9.i386

You'll need to kill and restart the applet. This occurs because some icons got
renamed during the RPM update, but you're still running the old applet. When
PackageKit does stuff, it triggers a panel resize, which causes the applet to
re-read it's icons (since the panel size changed the icon sizes will be
different), and since it's the old applet it can't find them...
