Description David Anderson 2006-05-12 08:51:32 EDT
The NetworkManager changelog contains this:

* Thu Mar 02 2006 Jeremy Katz <katzj@redhat.com> - 0.5.1-18.cvs20060302
- updated cvs snapshot.  seems to make airo much less spastic

In British English, joking usage of the word "spastic" is commonly seen as 
highly offensive. (The word itself refers to cerebal palsy). Using the word in 
this way is normally seen as belittling, or making a joke out of a serious 
condition, and hurtful to those who have to deal with it.

Should be fixed in next release of NM for rawhide and FC5.
