I would like to test this more, but my system is busy running "guix
system reconfigure", and it doesn't look like it'll finish any time
soon.  Shame on me for running "guix pull" first!  Heh.

Anyway, I will test this and get back to you before the end of the
weekend.  I don't think "type the root password" is a great work-around,
since on my machines, I prefer not to give root a password, and rely on
sudo instead.  Network Manager ought to be able to automatically connect
to a wireless network; there must be a reason why the authentication
(for checking the "automatically connect" box) is not working, but I
don't know what it is yet.
