Correction! Apologies for the noise.

Things _did_ begin working with:

create_args_wlan0="country GB regdomain etsi up"

– wifimgr brought up the list of networks moments after I clicked Send.

Now it works _without_ the 'up' part.


Re: the earlier failures, my best guess is that there was some dreg from 
misuse of iwn(4).
