I've got a gateway lt3103u (an odd little machine with LOTS of quirks, lemme tell ya)

This netbook has an Atheros AR9285, which does the following:

If I boot up and connect to a hotspot everything is fine,

BUT

If I do not connect with it (because wicd selects the wired ethernet, or because there is no open wifi), it locks up
my machine during shutdown at the place where wicd is taking down interfaces.

I have to hard shutdown :(

Then, when I boot up again, it locks up the machine as interfaces are being brought up :( :(

If I boot into windows, the next time I boot gentoo everything is back to normal and happy.

Any thoughts on what is causing this or what I might do to avoid it?
I have not seen anyone else on the WWW with this problem.

EDIT: I am finding that if I turn off the physical wifi switch during boot this also avoids the boot-up lockup... if only I could avoid the one during shutdown

I think the shutdown problem is an openrc issue, which refuses to stop interfaces in a certain state. You may want to report a bug on bugs.gentoo.org.

EDIT: ah nevermind, I missed that you are using wicd
