Possible Jaunty Bug

    I re-loaded Jaunty Beta this morning and when complete network 
manager almost automatically found my wifi and worked just fine. I got 
all my usual stuff with apt-get and then got 240 updates.

    After the updates I rebooted and when up the network manager was 
broken. It could not even see the strong signal from my router in this 
room. I did several things to no avail.

    I then in a way to test things I installed wicd and it installed 
just fine using the wired internet. I rebooted and worked with wicd 
which I know little about. I was unable to get it to work. It can see no 
wireless signals. It is as if the wifi hardware is turned off again. But 
it's not.

    It appears there is something in the 240 updates that ruins the 
network manager and wicd performance.

    I think this is a bug.
