I tried a few more things:
I get the errors below and rmmod/modprobe ipw2100 does not help. Since only NetworkManager
and not wicd nor "the old way" produces these error messages, I presume this is a bug.
$ dmesg | grep ipw2100

All attempts to connect to the wireless network result in an error message "bad password"
There are no errors in dmesg
3. This works without errors in dmesg and wcid recognizes the link is connected
$ cat /etc/network/interfaces
