Methinks there's a bug here.

For me if there is nothing in /etc/network/interfaces then it scans and
shows me the wireless networks that it finds. However it once I
configure the interface (entering ESSID and WEP key) that is written to
/etc/network/interfaces, whereafter it no-longer scans.

It therefore seems to be at best a grave misfeature that reduces the
usefulness of the tool to near zero. If anyone is of the opinion that
I'm misinterpreting the function & purpose of knetworkmanager speak up
or I'll post a bug report tomorrow.


P.S. Even first time I'm not connecting successfully but that may be a
problem with the orinoco driver and the airport card (though I used to
be able to connect manually to networks when running edgy).
