Not good if you have a really good passphrase! You can be more secure if 
the passphrase is kept protected on your system and is hard to enter, 
than have one that is 'easy'to remember and enter.

What is NetworkManager using for its 802.1X supplicant code?

I think I can see that it cannot be teh wpa_supplicant. It only supports 
the ipw2200, I have figured out. Not the ipw3945. So I will uninstall 
that. The xsupplicant rpm? or something internal?

BTW, I turned on an AP with no security, and connected right to it with 
NetworkManager. This really tends to narrow my problem to WPA support.
