Hi Toni,

thanks for bug report.

On a first glance it looks as if this issue only happens if a specific
flow path is taken in wicd-curses. It would be interesting to know
under which circumstances it exactly happens for you.

I assume it's reproducible for you.

Does this happen immediately or only when a known network which is set
to connect automatically is detected to be available, i.e. only after
a few seconds)?
