On the console I get:
Copying ifcfg-eth0 to devices and putting it into the default profile.
Warning : Device eth1 has been compiled with version 14
of Wireless Extension, while we are using version 15.
Some things may be broken...

Just debuged this: You don't test if KEY is present. So if a wireless file
has no KEY=.... entry neat will crash.
