Fedora Network Manager passes logging messages straight to syslog as the format string.
Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 4
Name        : NetworkManager
Version     : 0.4                      
Release     : 20.FC4.1                  
Summary     : Network link manager and user applications
Description :
NetworkManager attempts to keep an active network connection available at all
times.  It is intended only for the desktop use-case, and is not intended for
usage on servers.   The point of NetworkManager is to make networking
configuration and setup as painless and automatic as possible.  If using DHCP,
NetworkManager is _intended_ to replace default routes, obtain IP addresses
from a DHCP server, and change nameservers whenever it sees fit.

Update Information:

Network Manager passes logging messages straight to syslog
as the format string.
 This causes it to crash when connecting to access points
that contain format string characters.

This was reported initially by Ian Jackson:

* Fri Jul 29 2005 Ray Strode   - 0.4-20.FC4.1.
- Don't pass log messages into syslog format string (bug 164683).

* Mon Jul 11 2005 Dan Williams  - 0.4-20.FC4
- Move pkgconfig file to devel package (#162316, thanks to Michael Schwendt)

* Thu Jun 16 2005 Dan Williams  - 0.4-19.FC4
- Update from FC4 CVS branch:
	o Backport of Wireless Scan Methods (replaces Pause Wireless Scanning function)
	o Backport of Robert Love's applet beautify patch
