Works fine here, but Jonathan Kamens confirms this report on test-list. Not sure what's going on there. Same versions of NM and PK here.

How about:

Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2009-08-12 08:00:53 EDT
This is with a fresh install, and has been verified twice now: first in a virtual kvm instance and now on bare metal.
Comment 4 Adam Williamson 2009-08-12 14:34:45 EDT
same polkit package here too. :/ not disputing the veracity of the report, just wondering what factor makes it work on my lived-in system and not your  fresh one.

I'm seeing the same here and my system has been upgraded via yum update through several development cycles now.
Comment 6 Kjartan Maraas 2009-08-13 05:35:13 EDT
[kmaraas@nc6400 gtk+]$ rpm -q polkit
[kmaraas@nc6400 gtk+]$ rpm -q polkit-gnome

Comment 8 J. Randall Owens 2009-08-13 17:28:05 EDT
Same polkits with the Test Day image, and might be worth mentioning, there's also a lack of anything happening and the same .xsession-errors message when clicking "Delete".
Comment 9 Dan Williams 2009-08-14 15:02:15 EDT
Turns out this is due to dbus-glib 0.82 changing behavior, causing things that use PolicyKit-gnome to fail to authenticate.  Fixed in:
