you can exclude some files from being saved to the snapshot. From "man
This optional file, if present changes the behaviour of live-snapshot,
only files and directories listed there are included (integrally) in
the snapshot. It works only for cpio and whole partition targets.
This optional file, if present will filter the files that will be saved
by live-snapshot removing (as in "grep -F -v") all filenames that will
be matched by strings listed in it. It works for cpio, whole partition
and squashfs snapshot types only; it is pretty useful for filtering
temporary files and disk caches.
For this case you could use the file /etc/live-snapshot.exclude_list
and exclude the file where wicd saves the known network interfaces, so
each time you restart in a different computer, wicd starts with no
known interfaces and behaves correctly.
I'm not sure for wicd and I don't use full persistence, but excluding
the files you said in /etc/udev/rules.d/ and also
/etc/network/interfaces could be what you want.
