CVS-2-2 NMApplet signal bar

CVS-2-2 is working nicely. The only problem I have found is that NMApplet is no longer showing signal strength in the bar. However, the signal strength is shown when you hover and what is shown is exactly tracking what is shown by iwconfig for link quality.

My wireless driver is ipw2200. The way ipw2200 computes link quality is to minimize 5 values, one of which is signal quality. Under good conditions, link quality is the same as signal quality. I wrote a patch to replace the ipw2200 linear model for signal quality with a more accurate quadratic model and now my link quality, when booted in FC3, matches my link quality, when booted in Windows XP, for what that is worth.
