Description Panic 2001-08-04 10:15:05 EDT
Description of Problem:

changing the name of a connection (i.e., eth0 to something else like
"test") "deactivates" the interface and causes a traceback on neat shutdown:

Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/usr/lib/python1.5/site-packages/libglade.py", line 28, in
    ret = apply(self.func, a)
  File "/usr/sbin/neat", line 309, in on_okButton_clicked
  File "/usr/sbin/neat", line 215, in save
  File "/usr/sbin/neat", line 227, in saveProfiles
line 200, in save
    print 'Darn, symlinking device '+devName+','+devId+' failed...'
NameError: devName

It's failing to print the error. :)

How Reproducible:

Always (tested twice)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. set up a network configuration with neat, name it something
2. go back into neat and change the configuration name to something else
3. Note that the interface is deactivated immediately, and that neat
tracebacks on exit.

Actual Results:

deactivation of configuration, traceback on exit (configuration is not set
up and is non-functional).

Expected Results:

the configuration name should just be changed -- nothing else should be
affected, and the new scripts should be written on exit (at least)
