These aren't the latest updates, you probably want the newest bits and
the newest kernel at least.  But they won't help your problem.

> On a different system, as you know, I've built NM and nm-applet from source (with your latest alterations).  Same exact manifestation with this home-built, hacked version. I see Two identical lists, one below the other. Each has the grayed header "Wireless Networks (Belkin AR2413 802.11bg NIC)"

So this is the problem, NM thinks you have two wireless cards in your
machine.  That's most definitely a HAL/kernel issue.  What kernel
version do you have installed?

Can you mail me the output of 'lshal' and 'iwconfig' from the command
