I'm sitting in a Hotel where the hotel's own Wifi has an essid of "Hôtel du

Yep, that's space *and* an o with an accent circumflex.  I'm told that the 
password of this net is hotel, but as I was told it, and not having gotten 
it in written down form, it might as well be Hotel or Hôtel or HÔTEL or 
hôtel...  But I didn't even get that far as network manager never came as 
far as connecting:

May 15 19:08:30 localhost NetworkManager: <info>  User request to enable 
May 15 19:08:52 localhost NetworkManager: <info>  Updating allowed wireless 
network lists.
May 15 19:08:52 localhost NetworkManager: <WARN>  nm_dbus_get_networks_cb(): 
error received: org.freedesktop.NetworkManagerInfo.NoNetworks - 

(Well, somebody close by has an open WiFi with an essid of "default", so I'm 
fine ... :-)

I work in an utf-8 locale.

I don't have gnome here, so the problem could be anywhere between 
knetworkmanager, network-manager (0.6.6-1) and wireless-tools (29-1) or even 
in the kernel or the WiFi driver (2.6.25-1 on 686 and ipw2200) I've no idea.  
Of course, I'm only staying tonight, so I won't be able to do further 
testing, but perhaps anybody who knows the code has a sudden inspiration 
what could be the cause, or has a spare WiFi router to do experiments 
with... (I don't even own a WiFi router, so no I can't do experiments.  

And yes, somebody should whack the person who configured this over his head.

Should no longer be a problem since NM 0.7, so closing.

If you still have problems, using and up-to-date unstable system, please reopen.
