Re: A couple of minor issues

Alright, but wouldn't it be way smarter to just scan for wireless networks on unplugging the wired network? Then it would connect immediately and automatically to the preferred network without any user interaction.
This is something that probably needs to be changed in nm itself but not in the applet...

KNetworkManager tells NetworkManager that there is user interaction --
which in turn raises the scanning frequency -- whenever there is a mouse
enter event on the tray icon.
