Just for clarification, does this happen when you run "sudo
/usr/bin/wlassistant" or when you run /usr/sbin/wlassistant, and let pam take
care of the permissions?
There are new packages for F-7 here (they'll be in updates-testing on the next
Upgrade to wlassistant-0.5.7-5.fc7, and try just running /usr/sbin/wlassistant

Closing this one. Reopen if the updated wlassistant doesn't work (don't run it
with sudo, just run it.)
