  In general you are correct.  The applet does seem to work well, though it's 
a bit unclear what each bar in the graph means, and there are two other bugs:

1) it tells me that I have encryption off (I certainly do not, my wep key is 
set as ... well it's set. :-))
2) the dialog geometry is too small for the table so it has to be resize each 
time it is viewed.

Nothing too bad, really.  Would you like reports filed in bugzilla?
