Bug Description

I can't connect to WEP, apparently because of driver parameter; wicd seems to be running wpa_supplicant like this:
wpa_supplicant -B -i wlan0 -c /var/lib/wicd/configurations/000d88e34600 -D wext
and dhclient fails. I manually confirmed it. Then I tried removing driver parameter:
wpa_supplicant -B -i wlan0 -c /var/lib/wicd/configurations/000d88e34600
and voila, dhclient did it's job.

Can you add a "Do not specify a driver" or "Auto" option to let users prevent wicd to pass -D parameter to wpa_supplicant?
