/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):

How reproducible:
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
Actual results:
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.

Expected results:
It connects successfully, of course.

Additional info:
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.

This is more of a symptom of some larger IPv6 bugs that were recently fixed...
