Judging by your attachment and my console output it looks like it has to do with
NM not handling HAL devices that don't have an "info.vendor' property.
To me it looks like
"/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/usb_device_ace_1211_noserial_if0" is a USB device
on your system that has no "info.vendor", if you try unplugging all USB devices
and clicking nm-applet perhaps you can find the offender.
Still, I'd say NM (or hal) has to be patched to handle this.
Fixed in upstream SVN FWIW. Turns out that HAL changed recently so that the
net.physical_device of the network interface doesn't have the product & vendor
IDs, but the net.physical_device's parent does. So I've committed code that
walks up the tree up to the parent of the net.physical_device of the network
interface and grabs product & vendor info from that. Additionally, it is now
smarter about what it displays as the device description, and I fixed the actual
bug where the applet was crashing when the product or vendor info was NULL.
Sounds great. Any idea if this is going to make it into Fedora 8 ?
Will try to; can't guarantee that.
how does it look like? is it going to be fixed in f8?
going to be in a 0-day update to F8
it isnt still working for me...
an update for F8 hasn't been pushed yet since I'm still getting the cert issues
when do you think you are able to push an update?

I am not sure #393651 is a duplicate; I didn't have to click anything to make
nm-applet crash. Anyway, will retry once this one is fixed. Any chance for
that to happen any time soon?

If you want to test the update, you can install it with

its working for me!
