Description Phillip Merensky 2010-06-21 08:10:58 UTC
When using wicd-gtk and having scripts set for execution on connection or disconnection wicd-gtk stalls with "Disconnecting active connections" in the status bar.
When using wicd-curses the bug did not occur to me. The bug is already filed upstream at but marked incomplete. However there is a working patch by Jonathan (Comment #17) yet.
Because I had no time to wait on upstream inclusion and because wicd-1.6.2 is not longer in the tree, I wrote an ebuild which includes Jonathan's patch and thus fixes this issue. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a custom wired connection in wicd-gtk
2. Add scripts for execution on disconnection/connection
3. Try to connect to that connection

Actual Results:  
Wicd stalls and thus is not usable.

Expected Results:  
Successful connection.

Workaround: Use Wicd-curses

This patch was applied long time ago.  It is included in the 1.7.1 beta series that already has a stable version.
