RE: NM 0.6.5 and dhcp behavior

I am creating an account and will file the RFE.

I might have to add this behavior to 0.6.5.  If I do I will post a patch
when I am done.

Thanks for the info!

Correct.  It will assign an IPv4 autoip address.

No.  That might be a nice thing to try though.  Can you file an RFE on for it?  If you don't have an account there then I'll
file it I guess.
