netcfg crashes when no display is available
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:32:08 EDT
Typing netcfg from a command line crashes with some ugly errors when
DISPLAY isn't set. It would be nice for this to throw a real error message
instead rather than dumping errors. Here are the errors, in case they help
Traceback (innermost last):
