The XS works in mysterious ways... ;-)

OK -- that sounds reasonable.

Very odd -- the scripts / configuration that execute are the same
regardless of whether it is from cold boot or network restart.

Associating to the right AP is a good way to succeed ;-) -- keeping
this in mind, your other Sugar clients should register on the first
