I've since reconfigured the home network to use dhcp, and it works just 
fine if I do a service network start.  Do a stop, and start NM, and 
there is no connection.

Doing an iwconfig when NM is running discloses that the only thing 
different between a working link and non-working link is that when NM 
is running there is not a WEP key shown in the iwconfig output.

Is this enough info to trigger a response?
