If I boot my laptop without the ethernet cable plugged in and then connect
to a wireless network, I see at least these problems:

- Mozilla freezes if I type anything when mozilla is in focus 
  (However, I can browse using the mouse until I hit the keyboard)
- Nautilus hangs forever on startup.  No error messages.
- The panel and the rest of gnome eventually freeze.  

The mozilla freeze does not happen if, before turning on the RF, I type
something into a text box (like the URL window).  I still have the other
problems, though.

Stranger yet, I don't have these problems if I boot with an ethernet cable
connected, unplug it, and then start the RF.

I was running stock Ximian XD2 with the latest redcarpet updates e.g. Mozilla
1.4.2 and Nautilus 2.2.4.  I've just updated to mozilla 1.6 and I see the same

I'm starting the RF like so:

sudo ifdown eth0
sudo iwconfig eth1 essid scottonet
sudo iwconfig eth1 mode managed
sudo iwconfig eth1 key KEY_VALUE
sudo dhclient

Reporter, can you please download and use a newer uild.  Your build is a bit
old.  Download a nightly release to see if the problem reoccurs.

If it does, please post what type of wireless network you are using. E.g.
ad-hoc,access point and other details regarding the network.

Can you also check to see if it is not a driver problem of the network card by
updating your drivers.
