VPN authentication problem

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I'm am trying to create an ssl vpn connection (Password, no ca certificate) through openVPN using Network Manager. Creating the vpn is no problem but when I want to save it the save button is greyed and it says "Authenticate to save this connection for all users of this machine". I get no dialogue box for authentication and I cannot uncheck the "Available to all users" box. I'm using fedora 17 64-bit Gnome. I assume Network-manager is looking for root authentication to create the vpn, but I get no opportunity to provide this. Any suggestions? (HowTos)
