Bug Description

Greetings,

There are some similar bugs, but not what I experience:
- https://bugs.launchpad.net/wicd/+bug/585266
- https://bugs.launchpad.net/wicd/+bug/411836
- https://bugs.launchpad.net/wicd/+bug/1245070

I'm on arch linux, using openbox. wicd works fine on suspend/resume *as long as it's not open.* If I've opened the gui for some reason and left it open, when I suspend/resume, it won't do anything. I have to catch that its open and then manually select my network.

Is this the intended/desired behavior?

If not, are there further details I can provide?
