Bug description:
   * User has a hard time to login via network, (krb5) if nm-applet is not accessible via login screen. 

  [Test Case]
  1) make sure the system is configure to authenticate via krb5
  2) login with user "A" and disconnect from the network via nm-applet, logout
  3) Try to login with user B

   a. Actual Results:
  User B is not able to authenticate because the system is not connected to the network so we are not able to talk to the krb servers

   b. Expected Results:
  Users should be able to use network manager from within unity greater and reconnect to the network before attempting to login.

  [Regression Potential] 
   * n/a . The patch is a backport from upstream
