I have another one for Karmic, and I can do that as well. I've noticed
that there does not seem to be any way to get it to pay any attention to
an Ad-Hoc network. When I'm in range, the network appears in the
knetworkmanager applet, but if I click on it, nothing happens (much the
same as a hidden network did in a case we'd discussed in the past). I'm
not sure what the debug info would say, but it should be interesting to
find out. It looks like absolutely nothing happens at all.
