are there any best practices how to open configuration dialogs in gtk in compliance with dx team standards (e.g. not focus stealing, etc.)? Thanks!

This bug was fixed in the package network-manager-applet - 0.7.1~20090213+bzr960-0ubuntu1

network-manager-applet (0.7.1~20090213+bzr960-0ubuntu1) jaunty; urgency=low

  * new upstream snapshot 0.7.1pre Feb 13, 2009
    + rev: 960
    + revision-id: svn-v3-trunk0:9c6bbc85-7128-0410-879a-9bbc9e4270e9:branches%2FNETWORKMANAGER_APPLET_0_7:1161
    + branch:
  * add config for bzr-builddeb meta information; we declare "merge" as default
    operation mode and set the current top most upstream revision id
    - add .bzr-builddeb/default.conf
  * adjust patches to new upstream code
    - update patches/add_libmbca_support.patch
  * new tree layout doesn't have upstream sources; in turn we apply
    autotools/cdbs integration magic on the fly now; this means we run
    intltoolize in pre-build and create a dummy aclocal.m4 in clean::;
    doing that allows us to use a bzr export from the upstream tree
    instead of a make dist tarball
    - update rules
  * fix "(applet.c:1044):applet_open_mbca: code should not be reached"
    warnings that get dumped to console; typos produced those warnings
    even if nothing was wrong
    - update patches/add_libmbca_support.patch
  * bump lower bound for network-manager build-depends to >= 0.7.1~
    - update control
  * fix LP: #327427 - network manager applet should pop up wizard when
    3g device is plugged in and no configuration exists; we adjust the
    mobile broadband patch to not show notification.
    - update patches/add_libmbca_support.patch

Nope. Upstream does not use the mobile broadband wizard by
default (yet).
