i3wm/i3status users (Slackware) - problems with wifi status display?

Has anyone encountered any problems with the wifi status display in i3status(eg. "W: down"). Obviously first make sure that it's the correct interface that is specified in ~/.i3status.conf

For example for wlan0, it would be:

order += "wireless wlan0"

wireless wlan0 {
        format_up = "W: (%quality at %essid) %ip"
        format_down = "W: down"
Could you report:
1. Slackware version
2. i3wm version
3. i3status version
4. Any problems with wifi status display in i3status?
5. Output of:
stat $(which i3status)
Thank you
