Some recent (this is July 26, 2010) update to Lucid has caused
NetworkManager to wake up, on a system that has no need for it (static,
permanent, wired, unmanaged network link only) and begin broadcasting
via ipc-of-the-week (DBUS?) that the machine had no network connection,
causing Firefox, claws-mail, etc., to start in Offline mode. Firefox and
claws-mail both have obscure ways to tell them not to listen to what
NetworkMangler says. I've applied those and also removed as many
networkmanager packages as I could using Synaptic. I just hope the
Damned thing is dead now.

I also have a laptop, also running Lucid, that kind of needs something
like NetworkManager. It works so far. When it is good, it is very, very
good, and when it is bad, it is horrid.
