Description of problem:

Attempting to complete the network config via gnome.   Clicking on 'Apply' after
making any changes results in exception error:  Illegal argument type for
built-in operation.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):  AS2.1

How reproducible:

Very - happens on all four of my servers, no matter the network config change

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Open gnome main menu Programs/System/Network Configuration; or the Start
Here window to System/Network Configuration
2.  Change the hosts, DNS, etc. 
3.  Click on Apply.
Actual results:

The following exception error and no changes applied -
