I believe that this was fixed by Six Apart a while ago; I didn't
realise that the lenny package suffered from this problem :(

Bug#572018: wpasupplicant fails to associate after "wpa_action reload" if ap_scan=1

Package: wpasupplicant
Version: 0.6.9-3
Severity: normal

# lspci -v | grep -i Wire

# default ctrl_interface path
ctrl_interface=DIR=/var/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=netdev



I have started wpa_supplicant and the connection was working. Then I run wpa_action eth0 reload and the
connection did not work anymore. Bye the way if ap_scan=0 the connection interrupts only for about five
seconds like expected.

The Debian build links against GnuTLS, not MozNSS, so it isn't vulnerable 
to this issue.

Will do that.

Thanks for the contribution. I'll include your patches in the next upload.

Bug#570854: icewm: Menu entries for browsers no longer work

Can you provide your ~/.icewm/menu file or at least iceweasel and
icedove entries? I've added to this file

prog "Iceweasel" /usr/share/pixmaps/iceweasel.xpm iceweasel

and Iceweasel started without problems. Version: IceWM 1.3.5 backported
to Lenny.

    Use merkaartor.desktop from upstream.

    This also avoids duplicate entries in the desktop menu.

Bug#380731: understanding and kwow your place


I find quite amusing to read the comments in this bug report. Steve
Langasek's reply is simply too stupid to even be considered, yet
another extremist who make Debian such a pain to use.

However I can fully understand Steve as maintaining another SAPI is a
lot of work, and from a time point of view, it could be hard to
support. But I'd to say that it is an expected situation given the way
you patch PHP in all possible ways, including the suhoshin patch being
actived by default (which adds its lot of pain as well). Maybe the
right time to reconsider this strategy and work more closely with us
at php, as some of you began to do a couple of weeks ago. A long
awaited step.

Indeed, it still sometimes happen when I'm typing in some texts,
scrolling, or idling since a few seconds.

As noted in [2], it could seem it's fixed upstream [3], but another
report [4] is still open.


I'm retitling this bugreport so that it matches upstream's bug title

Sounds like a problem with XFCE then? Try another app which also uses
the keyring, such as seahorse or vinagre.

Epiphany does use the keyring for storing all your passwords, so asking
for it to be unlocked isn't "unnecessary".
