If you have passphrases turned on in Gnome it stores them in

Network manager stores its data via dbus which gets its stuff usually
from user configs.


Now I will say I had similar problems with the DAG ipw3945 and some
AP's. I had to recompile with some options turned off to get it to
work better. In the end, I switched to some Intel made rpms and tada
it all worked better. However, I can't use the device to do airsnort
etc so its a wash in my opinion.
