Right, the driver sends a disconnect, which makes NetworkManager think a 
problem happened, which makes knetworkmanager prompt again.  I also have this 
bug with the ipw3945 in my thinkpad.  I'd adapt knetworkmanager if there was 
something I could do about this, but if I understand the situation correctly 
we either need the driver fixing or some special casing in NM so that it 
ignores this disconnect - is that right?
