Confirming and setting to Triaged. This should be a fairly simple thing to fix in the wizard code in network-manager-gnome, so I'll also add the "bitesize" tag.

That's not what Fix Committed is for, so resetting this to Triaged. The fix is in a later upstream commit, which will either need to get included in a new snapshot of nm-applet or in a formal release.

Ideally I'd rather get a formal release from upstream, I think it's due very soon, too.
