Works fine on 0.88.

Also works fine on 0.88.

Quick, let's backport also the control panel to 0.84! ;-)

Indeed. I also think we're abusing the centralized control panel concept
for settings that could stay closer to the UI element they refer to.

For example:

 * "Network" should be available somewhere from the neighbor view.

 * "Modem Configuration"  could become a menu item of the GSM device

 * "Power" could become a single checkbox in the battery menu

The control panel should really be for global system-wide settings.
