WICD keeps asking for user password at Openbox start; how to turn off?

So, in any other Desktop or WM, wicd never asks for password
yesterday I installed Openbox,etc from SlackBuilds and each time I start Openbox it asks for my user's password.

I did some googling but couldn't find anything regarding Slackware & wicd
and I'm using -current

User is part of netdev group so what's the issue?
Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving!

Hi linus72,

I had this problem after I disabled the rc.wicd daemon (I set rc.wicd to not executable). It seems the password is asked for if the daemon could not be started.
