[maemo-users] WiFi borked after update

I agree that updating over a network should, and does work from a "normal"
Linux distro, however, I'm not sure it's going to work on Maemo anytime
soon; I'm guessing the small memory footprint prevents some of the
applications from not killing off a SSH session when there's an upgrade. I'd
say the better thing is to write into the install scripts that need to kill
of network concections, a test to ensure there is not an active ssh session,
and dump a warrning if there is.

You make it idiot proff, and I'll become a better idiot and still find a way
to crash it. ;)
