Actually I think David's patches 2/3 and 3/3 regarding enable_network
are ok (wrt restarting sched scan when
a new network is enabled) and I don't want me to keep you from applying them.

My suggestion was to replace patch 1/3 regarding the remove network
and I'll try to get these
worked out later today or max tomorrow.

Thanks,
