Comment(by mavrothal):

 Replying to [comment:6 pgf]:

 > i don't understand what you mean.  wifi operation as regards
 suspend/resume isn't dependent on what window manager is running.

 OK, excuse my ignorance, assumptions and misconceptions, I thought that
 the control panel is part of Sugar and when in Gnome Sugar is not running,
 network "should be killed" by something independent of the radio or power
 management Sugar control panel and the related infrastructure.
 I also thought that the RFKILL module was present in os373pyg [[BR]]
 But all this this is "philosophical"...[[BR]]

 The bottom line is that the os373pyg kernel is actually MISSING the rfkill

 [olpc at xo-11-ea-51 ~]$ cat
 /boot/config-2.6.31_xo1-20100701.1605.1.olpc.a8f1b26 | grep RFKILL
 # CONFIG_RFKILL is not set

 Edited the title of the bug accordingly
