Bug#801253: O: wicd -- wired and wireless network manager


now it's crunch time. I'm trying to do the long promised and long
awaited QA upload of wicd 1.7.3.

That's not where I run into it.

Start wicd-curses, choose any wireless network and press cursor-right.
Then I always get the following Traceback:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/wicd/curses/wicd-curses.py", line 1146, in call_update_ui

I really hoped, you were right. But unfortunately this wasn't the
case. I just tried it on an uptodate Debian Sid and still have that

Searching the net for this rather generic looking "ValueError: None is
not in list" error message I luckily found a patch from another Linux
distribution which had the very same issue with wicd 1.7.3:


I'll add this to the Debian package and see if I get further. If so,
I'll upload.
