--- Comment #16 from J.R. Oldroyd <fbsd_at_opal.com> ---
Okay, I think it is the use of NOAUTO in the ifconfig_wlanN lines that was
confusing wifimgr.  It was looking for an associated network and, when none was
found, it was setting the GUI status to down, even though the interfaces were
actually up.

I have now added code to not look for associated networks, but to simply look
at the interfaces' statuses when determining the GUI up/down status.

New version is 1.17.11.

By the way, I didn't answer your point about the delay before.  The delay is
due to waiting for the interface up command to complete.  You can run
"/etc/rc.d/netif start wlanN" and you will see the same delay.

Once that command completes wifimgr does loop for up to 10s more waiting for an
associated network.  However, in practice, this isn't needed as the interface
will have associated before the "netif start" command returned.
