Ticket #1540 (closed defect: fixed)
ad-hoc mode runs each user as DHCP host

Ad-hoc mode doesn't work. Reproduced on Sugar-0.86.3 on Fedora 12.
In both cases (creating an ad-hoc network, joining an ad-hoc network), the IP address 10.42.43.1 is assigned to the interface, and NetworkManager starts running a DHCP server (dnsmasq). This means that everyone on the network has the same IP hence no collaboration is possible.
avahi-autoipd should be used instead.
