If you run ifconfig with a typo, e.g.
ifconfig /dev/net/atheroswifi/ down
the deskbar network applet will get a new (erroneous) device entry "/dev/net/atheroswifi/: No link"
I don't know if the bug is in ifconfig or the deskbar applet, so I dropped it into networkstatus. I would think ifconfig should tell you that you didn't use a real network device... maybe this is two bugs?
