Not yet, but I don't use the wifi very often.

I use wicd, but its logs at this time are:

2011/08/19 01:48:46 :: attempting to set hostname with dhclient
2011/08/19 01:48:46 :: using dhcpcd or another supported client may work better
2011/08/19 01:48:47 :: attempting to set hostname with dhclient
2011/08/19 01:48:47 :: using dhcpcd or another supported client may work better

then when I reconnected, as usual:

2011/08/19 01:49:20 :: Connecting to wireless network vinc17
2011/08/19 01:49:20 :: attempting to set hostname with dhclient

So, it seems that wicd wasn't responsible of the reason=3, unless
it didn't log what it did.
