One more command to show that there is no eth0 in my system:

And restarted wicd:

root@mk802:~# service wicd restart
[ ok ] Restarting Network connection manager: wicd.

wicd-curses shows wireless networks now, FIXED.

I noticed other problem with wicd-curses at netbook Toshiba AC100 when I was working at this problem. wicd-curses uses F10 key for saving preferences but AC100 has no F10 key. I thing you should avoid Fx keys in your curses interface...
