It is my understanding that real-time kernels force processes to work simultaneously rather than sequentially, forcing some of them to bypass safety features. I checked this on the net and only found references to 2007 and earlier, so this may have been resolved. 
In Studio wireless is not automatically enabled (through gnome-network-admin), and I thought this was one of the reasons why, because you have to activate consciously, and only over a secure network. For instance, you would never let your banking information fly over your library or coffee shop wireless.
