nm-applet multiple password prompts

Tried searching this one but no solutions found...

At work the network is very patchy and will frequently disconnect. nm-applet will display a password prompt every time it cannot connect to the network - sometimes resulting in many, many overlayed password prompt dialog boxes if I am not using my computer for some time.

Is there a way of either
1) stopping nm-applet opening more than one password prompt at a time?
2) stopping nm-applet prompting at all (the password is saved, it just prompts because it cannot connect due to poor signal)?
3) Replacing nm-applet with another solution?

I am using FC18.

Thanks for any suggestions.

PS task manager tells me nm-applet using 336MB and 50% CPU without having closed any of the prompts, so there are a lot of prompts!
