and left click applet has no connection 'none' and actual connection is not
selected (no dot in connection circle). Still able to connect!- threw actual

or come back as connected to 'none' and no dot next to connection, repeat until
results are correct.

Network Manager Applet 0.7.0 on Fedora 126.96.36.199-55.fc9.i686 with Gnome desktop
Assign non broadcast SSID to wireless network using WPA/WPA2 security. Add
wireless network to Network Manager with SSID name and passkey. Establish
working connection, restart computer, mouse over Network Manager Applet and read
connection SSID name. Left click applet and check for dot next to connection.
Steps to Reproduce:
2.Click wireless connection under applet.
