"dyson homenet" is what it was associating to when the applet was
crashing tonight at my parents' place. It didn't appear to be
detecting any other networks either.

I just realized it was not clear I'm seeing applet crash only, not the
networkmanager daemon.

When associating to that network, the applet would crash when the
association was complete and the icon was about to switch to the
"connected, displaying signal strength" mode. The interface remained
up, and nothing interesting is reported by the daemon to the syslog.
