Latest NetworkManager unable to connect

/var/log/messages after the reboot (NM 0.8...)
Description of problem:
After updating to the latest NetworkManager, it is no longer able to connect.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
For me, it fails 99% of the time. On a friend's laptop, it works fine.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Update to the latest version, have a system connection, reboot
2. Log in, notice that the applet is still indicating that NetworkManager is still trying to connect
NetworkManager never declared success.
ip addr shows that all the IPv6 addresses have been configured, but IPv4 address from DHCP has not been assigned, there is no route, and /etc/resolv.conf is empty.
It connects successfully, of course.
My network driver is iwlagn (but so's my friend's). This is a Dell Studio 1537 (my friend's is a Dell Studio 1555).
I don't know if it's specific to wireless or if it's networking in general. When I looked at the /var/log/messages, I saw that NetworkManager appeared to get and recognize a response from the dhcp server, but it didn't actually assign the address (or not for very long). I'll post the extract as an attachment.

The logs after I was able to downgrade NetworkManager
This is more of a symptom of some larger IPv6 bugs that were recently fixed...
