For some reason, connman cannot connect to its services, providing the 
error:

Error getting services: Rejected send message, 3 matched rules; 
type="method_call", sender=":1.26" (uid=1000 pid=2179 comm="connmanctl ") 
interface="net.connman.Manager" member="GetServices" error name="(unset)"

When I am running as root, it is able to properly configure and connect to 
all of its services, and I am able to connect to wifi, leading me to 
believe that some executable doesn't have the right permissions.

Probably unrelated, but my enlightenment desktop occasionally segfaults. Is 
this a bug in enlightenment, or am I missing a service? I have connmand, 
dbus, lightdm, consolekit, udevd, and the virtual terminals enabled in my 
/var/service.

I am not familliar with the connman service, but I would actually EXPECT 
that not just any user can make changes to the systems network settings. If 
you need to make network changes often maybe adding your user to the 
"network" group helps? Otherwise just use sudo.

This appears to be a bug with connman if this is the case. I can connect 
properly with NetworkManager set up as a service. I am in the network 
group, so unless there is some other connman specific group, there is a 
problem with connman.
