Indeed, I have no idea either.  Running GNOME at the same time as
Sugar means NetworkManager might behave differently, as it has
multiple clients.  So I never wanted to try that.  Because it would
not be representative of the typical usage.

When I was last testing Sugar and NetworkManager interaction, I did it
on a system, such as an XO, without GNOME running.  I edited the
source files live and restarted Sugar to see the changes.  When I had
finished, I copied my changes out of the target and into git using ssh.

Still, I think it sucks that I had to restart Sugar to see the
changes.  Waste of time.
