As far as I understood, WPA-PSK cannot be used via system-config-network 
for now? Then probably, the fact that my AP is configured for WPA-PSK is 
the reason I have problems configuring it via s-c-n.

The problem is that I can't get it working through the s-c-n, for some 
mysterious reasons: I enter the same passphrase as I enter into 
nm-applet's prompt. The AP is associated with; but the 'dhclient eth1' 
(run as a part of 'ifup eth1') just hangs indefinitely. 
In /var/log/messages, there are repeated DHCPREQUEST lines logged. The 
same card/AP/passphrase work with NM, though.

Googling for this problem suggested wrong key being supplied. I modified 
NM to output the passphrase it supplies to wpa_supplicant in clear text 
into /var/log/messages; it was the same as the one I entered into s-c-n 
(tried both ASCII and HEX variants).

It would be nice if I could ask NM to publish its settings into system: 
e.g. have a check box in the passphrase dialog that instructs it to 
publish the settings system-wide.
