wicd asks for password before connecting after upgrade to karmic

I've solved this, but in a klunky way. Just wanted to put it out there
in case there are others who hit a roadblock and perhaps to tweak the
nice folks who know more than I to reveal a better, less klunky solution.
Running Jaunty, fully updated. wicd as installed nm.
Update to Karmic via alternate-cd mounted image. All goes well, but on
reboot, wicd requires password (wired connection, no wireless on this
box). I provide password, but have to stop and restart wicd to get
packets to pass.
A review of google results and the forums talk about something similar
from Intrepid to Jaunty upgrade, involving the /etc/init.d/wicd script,
but that was not the issue. I'm guessing that wicd wasn't starting
properly, and tried to after the GUI came up. Clientside working,
Anyway, I re-mounted the karmic-alternate cd image, did sudo apt-get
install network-manager, which removed wicd, then after reboot
(required, or so it said), I did sudo apt-get install wicd and all is well.
This one's for the archives, in case anyone runs into this trouble...I'm
sure there's a more elegant solution, but this worked for me.
