Unable to disable wireless with latest NetworkManager-gnome

two days ago I updated my FC13 x86_64 from
Jul 28 08:52:35 Updated: 1:NetworkManager-gnome-0.8.1-1.fc13.x86_64
Aug 28 16:20:47 Updated: 1:NetworkManager-gnome-0.8.1-4.git20100817.fc13.x86_64

and now I'm noticing I'm not able to disable wireless any more.
My nm-applet process is active
gcecchi   2306  2167  0 07:46 ?        00:00:00 nm-applet --sm-disable

and I see the double-monitor icon, but usually I right-clicked on
nm-applet window and checked out the "enable wireless" option.
Now I see that the first two lines are enabled but greyed out....
Is this expected behaviour from update? I don't see a reference inside
the rpm changelog...

I remember some past threads (probably in FC11 time...) where it was
requested to keep wireless state as last session.
It worked for some time but then nm-applet came back to be always
enabled, so that I have to manually disable each time I didn't need
it... any news on this?
Was this "remembering last state for wireless on next reboot" feature
abandoned, or do I have to open a bug?

BTW: I wanted to make a screenshot but if I right click and then press
the stamp button I do not have the "save screenshot" pop-up... any way
to do it (without a digicamera.. ;-)
