If I go back to an older wicd version it works OK or if I use the default network- manager it'll work OK, XP works OK. Rarely if I kill the latest wicd version via the terminal and restart via the terminal: sudo wicd, it will work but normally it hangs as described.

get attention from the developers if they do not know anything is
wrong. The way the developers are told something is broken is the bug
