even after restarting the daemon (with service NetworkManager restart)

Reproduced here on a ppc - probably has to do with keyring access?

The backtrace is fairly long and goes through
applet_dbus_connection_settings_get_secrets, connection_new_secrets_requested_cb, 
applet_settings_new_secrets_requested_cb, nma_wireless_dialog_new,
security_combo_init, and finally crashes in strcmp.

'bt full' will be attached.

gdb 'bt full' from nm-applet
Comment 4 Dan Williams 2007-10-25 17:58:15 EDT
Will be fixed in next build.  Wasn't checking value of auth_alg before
strcmp()-ing it.  It's allowed to be NULL for wireless connections with no

please try svn3030 or later when they hit
Comment 9 Jeremy Katz 2007-10-29 10:42:45 EDT
Just switched back and forth a few times with today's rawhide image (which has
3030) with no problems
