Bug Description

Binary package hint: wicd

This error message was repeated over and over in the log (under /var/log/wicd), eventually nearly filling the disk:

"process 1309: The last reference on a connection was dropped without closing the connection. This is a bug in an application. See dbus_connection_unref() documentation for details.
Most likely, the application was supposed to call dbus_connection_close(), since this is a private connection."

before the first occurrance of that message, there were these messages:
