In my case, the issue was with the underlying driver with the card plus
wicd's poor handling of failures. The connection would drop, but wicd
would continue to try to do DHCP on the connection, so it would sit
there for a while spinning its wheels. Networkmanager would actually see
the failures and restart the connection process until it worked. Using
NM instead of wicd can be a good way to cover up driver issues.

I had used wicd for months without problems, but last spring, I was
unable to get on a WPA/WPA2 access point. The password was correct.
Several other devices were connected. After a few days, I was able to
get a cable connection and install networkmanager. I tried it and
worked without problem. Didn't have time to work out what the issue
was and I'm still just using networkmanager.
