This bug report sounds very strange.
Matt, could you try to strace the nm-applet resp. NetworkManager process when
that happens. For bonus points, run the nm-applet process in a debugger and then
trigger the freeze, so we have a clue, where/when in the code that problem is
Do you have anything suspicious in the log files: ~/.xsession-errors,
P.S: What system are you running (architecture, distro, versions of
network-manager and dependencies).
Please use reportbug next time, so this information is added automatically.
