OK, i yum-updated the 32-bit system to udev-124-2.fc9 and rebooted. Problem still there.

There doesn't seem to be a 64-bit package yet; do you recommend i compile udev? (Not sure how involved or risky that is. Building Hal involved various ./configure --enable-* options and yum-installing their corresponding *-devel packages; a small hassle, but feasible)


My googling is not yielding much.

I am completely stupefied by being alone in this. The 32-bit *and* the 64-bit Fedora 9 DVD iso images i downloaded, plus the install DVD I snail-mail-ordered all seem to contain the bug; I used all of them to install on many systems and never saw the nm-applet list without duplication, ever.

And yet, Dan reports never having seen the phenomenon on Fedora 9 systems. Nor can i find something similar online. Completely and utterly stumped.
