I had a second to poke around a bit more, so I looked a bit more at
what other error messages I could have it give me. Here's some followup:

I opened nm-connection-editor again and tried to edit the VPN I have
already set up. I clicked on 'edit', and the UI showed me this:


Seeing as how that looked like a dbus name, I checked d-feet to see if
such a service was riding the bus.

Seems like yes: http://i.imgur.com/ikklOhq.png

When I hit the dbus interface as root, I could introspect it. Seems like
it's on the bus and responding to requests. This is funny to me. So, I
looked for where this came from, and saw it was defined in

I opened it and double checked the paths. They seem good, except one
file needed a `.so` appenended to it. This seems sane enough for a path
you'd expect to be a .so, so I don't think it's a likely lead. Here's
shell output:

Nothing totally broken. Not sure why it isn't talking with this service.
Maybe the API of the dbus service changed? Could this be a strongswan-nm

Not sure where to look next,
