 > OK, I just spend 4 hours trying to reproduce the bug again. Apparently
 no success. What I did today:
 > 1. Installed fresh PCBSD9 from full USB image with GNOME only.
 > 2. GNOME network manager is lost and does not show any configuration
 > 3. Configuration through PCBSD control panel worked ok (first add bwn0
 as interface, then adds wlan0 together with config of AP what create
 > So this way is ok - we can at least say that full configuration from
 PCBSD control panel works.
 > I am suspicious that the bug popped two days ago due to me playing with
 other window managers (I switch from LXDE to KDE to GNOME and did some
 network settings through their tools).

 This makes it sound like you were initially using some other network
 configuration utility (such as from the installed desktop environment)
 that caused the bug to occur, but if you only use the PC-BSD tools instead
 it seems to work fine.
 Is this a fair summary? If so, it might be an error in the porting of that
 DE's network utilities to FreeBSD rather than a problem with our PC-BSD
 network utilities.
