[driverloader] Driverloader + WPA + NetworkManager status?

Does anybody know what the current status of the WPA support in 
NetworkManager is currently, when using the driverloader driver?

Right now when I select my home SSID in NetworkManager, I get a popup 
with this error:
Error connecting to wireless network

The requested wireless network requires security capabilities 
unsupported by your hardware.


Reading some mailing list, I saw that the madwifi driver for example had 
this issue, until they patched it to advertise its WPA capabilities.

I was wondering if the driverloader suffered the same issue?

In other words, if I upgrade all my software (NetworkManager, 
wpa_supplicant, DriverLoader, ...) to the latest CVS/SVN versions, is 
there a chance that things will work in the end?
