Comment(by erikos):

 Gary there is no gconf switch, yet. The code does the following, it checks
 whether a mesh device is available, if not create the Ad-hoc networks. If
 a XO-1.0 deployment wants to use the Ad-hoc networks they can disable the
 device (init script) for example.

 But yes, maybe a gconf option might be even better. Would make the code
 simpler as we do not have to deal with timeouts for checking of the
 existence of the device.

 For now for testing, just set line 1142 in meshbox.py to 'False' (with the
 rpms I posted above) in order to test it on XO-1.0 the Ad-hoc networks
 (you should see the Ad-hoc and mesh icons then).
