Here it seems to work, i.e. when I boot the machine, wicd
automatically connects to this network. But in the case of a
disconnection from the kernel, it seems that wicd interprets
this as a disconnection by the user, so that it terminates
wpa_supplicant and does not try to reconnect.

This option is available in the GUI, but AFAIK, it is for the daemon.
