    That work around admits that NetworkManager is eating RAM! I do not 
think that it does this if your using wired in Internet because I had my 
Hardy running for a month and it didn't eat RAM. The problem is just 
with computers using WiFi which is a small set of the whole.

    The problem is that part of NetworkManager is using code that has 
the problem. It takes a talented code writer to fix this problem which 
is expensive.

    I like the cron job fix and think it should be used in the long term 
as a fix.
