-----------------------------------------------------+----------------------
 When adding a wireless network to the network list, if the SSID is too
 long, it is truncated in the list and an ellipsis is added. This will not
 let you connect properly.

 Sorry, i'm new to BSD and don't know the terms to better explain it.
 Basically, when i scanned for a network using the utility, my network came
 up, but the SSID is longer than the field. So when added to the list of
 networks, it was added with an ellipsis. This confused the hell out of me
 for the longest time. I'm sure there's a simple fix to this in the
 utility. It worked after i edited it in the list and put the full name.
