Bug Description

The first time I try to configure a network, I get this traceback:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/wicd/curses/wicd-curses.py", line 1134, in call_update_ui
    self.update_ui(True)
  File "/usr/share/wicd/curses/wicd-curses.py", line 94, in wrapper
    return func(*args, **kargs)
  File "/usr/share/wicd/curses/wicd-curses.py", line 1146, in update_ui
    self.handle_keys(input_data[1])
  File "/usr/share/wicd/curses/wicd-curses.py", line 1028, in handle_keys
    self.diag = WirelessSettingsDialog(pos, self.frame)
  File "/usr/share/wicd/curses/netentry_curses.py", line 503, in __init__
    self.set_values()
  File "/usr/share/wicd/curses/netentry_curses.py", line 543, in set_values
    wireless.GetWirelessProperty(networkID, 'bitrate')
ValueError: None is not in list

But, I'm able to connect to a network via wicd-gtk, and once this connection is saved, it can be modified later using wicd-curses.

I get the same thing on the latest build from source.

Likely introduced by this change:

"Implement iwconfig bitrate setting"
http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~wicd-devel/wicd/experimental/revision/813

The line that causes the crash is trying to set a checkbox for the current bitrate, but there is not current bitrate for networks we're not currently connected to. It's a nice idea, but that change needs some work. I'd stick to 1.7.2.4 for now. Seems to be in a much better place.

Commenting the lines 541 to 545 on netentry_curses.py for wicd 1.7.4 fixed this issue for me.
