Connman (icon) doessn't work if NetworkManager is in use on the system
Open, NormalPublic

Description

Lenovo TP X1-carbon Running E23 (0.23.1+18+gitbab2b503f6-6buster18) on Elive 3.8.11 amd64

Connman and NetworkManager don't play nice together leaving an unusable connection icon on the ibar, displaying faulty status. Specifically after a suspend/hibernate wake-up or a login from another DE (E16).

Most newcomers will already have another DE running incorperating NetworkManager, thus giving a wrong impression of Enlightenment capabilities.

A workaround is needed as uninstalling NetworkManager will cripple the other DE.

Disabling network-manager.service on login for E23 might be an option, methinks.
