Nuts... that explains that then :(

I guess this isn't a problem if you're using NetworkManager (since no 
ifcfg-* files are needed), but NetworkManager also has it's own problems 
at the moment.  Although, when I was using NetworkManager I had the 
problem that when the device reappears you get a default ifcfg-* file 
which causes the boot process to sit there trying to get a DHCP lease off 
an 802.11 card that has no ESSID set (so it could never work), so this is 
still a problem.
