As a followup:

Installing wicd & then:
sudo /etc/init.d/wicd restart
works to get a connection back up. However, the old network-manager icon
will still show in the gnome panel & the new wicd icon will not show up
unless you log out/in. I suppose that you could restart via the cli, but
standard log out & then back in does the trick for me.
