Yeah, we'll get there. For the time being, I'd assume that _all_ such
problems are down to the bcm43xx driver, not to NetworkManager.
Today's bcm43xx snapshot should be in the 2.6.15-1.1829_FC5 kernel which
is now building, btw.
Though quite soon we'll be tossing lots of the actual card/driver
manipulation over to wpa_supplicant (even for unencrypted and WEP). So
most of the bitrate, frequency, etc stuff won't be in NM anymore. Then
we get to fix wpa_supplicant ;)
