Bug Description

I am setting IP-address of this computer outside DHCP, 10.0.0.5.

Wicd fills in the details "netmask: 255.255.255.0" and "default gateway: 10.0.0.1". The default gateway is correct, but the netmask should be 255.0.0.0.

 * the version of Wicd (found in the package manager or the About button in the GUI)

Version: 1.7.2.4-4
I am using this repository: http://jupiter.hanskalabs.net/debian/

 * the Wicd log file (usually in /var/log/wicd/wicd.log)

Doesn't seem to say anything related.

 * your Linux distro

Hey Mika,

1.7.2.4-4 is the current version in Debian; it doesn't seem to come from my repository.

Besides that, this is a bug I'm aware of -- you already reported it in Debian ;)

Thanks for opening it here too, though. I'll fix this ASAP.
