Just adding my experience wrt iwl3945 getting the blame.  I don't think
mac80211 should get the blame either since I didn't change the kernel
during this.

But don't get me wrong, it's fine if NetworkManager (which has gotten a
LOT better for me in the last months) is broken in Development at any
particular time.  The fact the F7 one was "stable" enough to replace it
is fine too.
