Description of problem: the /var/log/messages file is flooded with errors and soon fills the entire space available, preventing the next login. Until that file is deleted, i am not able to login again. I am recently upgraded to kde4.1 from the 'updates-testing' repo.
i see thousands of lines in that file as below:
Aug 25 13:05:14 localhost NetworkManager: nm_supplicant_interface_get_connection_state: assertion `NM_IS_SUPPLICANT_INTERFACE (self)' failed

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

[root@localhost log]# uname -a
Linux localhost.localdomain #1 SMP Mon Aug 4 14:08:11 EDT 2008 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
[root@localhost log]# rpm -q NetworkManager
[root@localhost log]# ll /var/log/messages*
-rw------- 1 root root 249341772 2008-08-25 21:06 /var/log/messages

the above size of the 'messages' file is just after i deleted it and rebooted the system.

How reproducible:
upgrade kde to the latest from the 'updates-testing' repo.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.as above.
Actual results:

i don't think that line should be in thousands of numbers in that file.

Expected results:
the 'messages' file should not be bloated like that.

Additional info:

pl tell me what all i have to tell you for a clearer diagnosis.
