So are there now some new fixes in drakconnect that should enable it's
co-operation with NM?
I did my latest tests on saturday on then up to date cauldron and at
least then I still needed to reboot the laptop after introducing it in
drakconnect to new AP, before I was really able to get the laptop
connecting to ap.

And are there some other NM compatible UI WLAN tools available that
should work with NM enabled? (to be able to use console tools like ifup,
iwconfic, etc, one must at least disable the NM control for the network
interface in drakconnect interface configuration)
