Good catch!  Thanks.  I think I need to get glasses.  I did see where
it was referenced but it looked like it was being called, not sourced.

My wired interfaces can be taken up and down with no problems even
when ipv6 is active.  The wireless is very finicky.  I'll play later

I did put a bz in for the wpa_supplicant looping between associating
and dropping the associations.  It turned out running wpa_supplicant
from the shell with the "-d" flag output a world of useful
