Comment(by erikos):

 Tomeu, thanks for your comments.

 I think the first issue you are describing has nothing to do with the
 patch itself. When you use sugar-emulator and have nm-applet running at
 the same time they will interfere with each other. For example: You are
 connected to the wireless network X with nm-applet and try to connect to
 the wireless network Y in the sugar emulator: nm-applet will disconnect
 from it's previous connection.

 If now (with the patches applied), you have no wireless connection set in
 sugar (.sugar/X/nm/connections.cfg) after a timeout sugar will try to
 connect to an adhoc network, hence interrupt the open connection you had
 with nm-applet. As sugar and nm-applet are not synced for the connections
 this is what you will see.

 About the blocking of the UI: the dbus call you are mentioning that give
 out the error message is asynchronous actually, there are handlers
 specified. I will have a look why the error message gets called in the
 first place, not sure yet.
