Bug Description

When the user plugs in a mobile broadband dongle while inside the greeter and there are no mobile broadband connections defined the menu contains the item "New Mobile Broadband (GSM) connection..." even though the user does not have network-control permission.

[expected result]
The menu does not contain "New Mobile Broadband" item if the user is missing control-network or settings.modify permissions.

[actual result]
The user sees the item and can activate the mobile broadband wizard. After completing the wizard an error dialog pops up informing that adding a new connection failed because of missing permissions.
