was false instead of true in there, yeah.  I suspect on mine it's because I 
hit the rfkill button.  Rebooting should reset the rfkill button (it used to) 
but it appears not to.

So after doing what you said I am left with KNM only offering "create new 
wireless network" and not displaying available networks at all (no, the option 
to choose a different network is not there).
