I can confirm that this bug still occurs on Lucid, and also that the
workaround still works too. In case someone missed it:

1. If you tried configuring the network manually, delete it first (via the "Manage Connections..." menu option).
2. Run "sudo iwlist wlan0 scan essid <the_hidden_ssid>" in a terminal. Make sure you see your network among those displayed.
3. The network will now appear on the tray icon's network list, from which you can connect to it normally by selecting it.

You only need to do this once (it will remain on the list after reboot,
connect automatically, etc.)

Feel free to add your vote to the upstream bug to get it fixed sooner...
