I get this also. it makes firewalld seem not useful to me.
Discussed at 2012-04-20 blocker review meeting - http://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/fedora-bugzappers/2012-04-20/fedora-bugzappers.2012-04-20-17.01.log.txt . Accepted as a blocker per final criterion "All elements of the default panel (or equivalent) configuration in all release-blocking desktops must function correctly in common use", so long as firewalld is the default firewall for F17. If it is reverted as a default, this bug may stop being a blocker.
