How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. On the "devices" tab, hit "add".
2. Select "ethernet".

4. Press the "Probe for Address" button.

Actual Results:

Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/usr/lib/python1.5/site-packages/libglade.py", line 28, in __call__
    ret = apply(self.func, a)
line 111, in on_hwProbeButton_clicked
    hwaddr = commands.getoutput("LC_ALL= LANG= /sbin/ip -o link show

Expected Results:
I don't know what to expect here.
