This is a problem we cannot easily fix: The ioctl's used report Encryption
as off if the user is not root. One idea would be to display something
else for root users. Same is with the essid setting, which normal users
cannot query. I probably have to talk to the author of the wireless
drivers to find a good fix.

It already does some kind of stretch-by-2, since the preferred size is
even smaller. Does somebody have a good idea?
