Bug Description

I am starting wicd using "sudo wicd" command in terminal. Following is the output wicd produces. Note that there's no other action in GUI nor CLI.

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/wicd/daemon/wicd-daemon.py", line 1859, in <module>
  File "/usr/share/wicd/daemon/wicd-daemon.py", line 1708, in main
    os.symlink(dest, backup_location)
