As documented in bug 180369, NetworkManager stopped connecting my 
madwifi wireless card after the change from NetworkManager-0.5.1-8 to 
NetworkManager-0.5.1-10. I use the CVS versions of the madwifi drivers.  
I use WEP for authorization.

Today I downloaded the SRPM for NetworkManager-0.6.0-2 and removed the 
special-case-madwifi.patch and built the binary.  This version of NM can 
connect to my madwifi card.  The patch is trying to work around a WPA 
problem in the madwifi drivers.  My question is has the fix for WPA 
broken WEP?
