How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual Results:  Component: system-config-network
Version: 1.3.16

Expected Results:  The network configuration GUI should have opened.

Additional info:

I was in the process of configuring wireless when this occured. My
chipset is a Broadcom 1180 and is not, by default, compatible with
linux. I was using driverloader from linuxant.com to load the 1180
chipset drivers.
