CVS currently has a few locking issues that may cause the applet not to
be able to talk to NetworkManager at points and therefore not be able to
update the quality.  You'll also need to make sure you've got CVS from
late yesterday (I committed around 3PM EST and anoncvs takes a
while to sync).  Once I get the locking thing fixed, we should see if
this is still a problem.
