there has been a problem with network manager since the 11.2 opensuse

the kde3 networkmanager.
Is it possible to use the KDE3 version with 11.2 or later? I'm currently using 11.0 on all my computers and intend to do so for as long as it's supported. However, someday I'll be forced onto KDE4 and will be needing KNetworkmanager for my notebook computer. I do not use it on any other computer.

Why does KNetworkmanager have so many issues? One that I've noticed is when you scan for networks, it doesn't show all that are available. I recall some discussion with a developer where he claimed it was a "feature" in that you'd otherwise have a long list to sort through. Instead, I often have to use WiFi Radar to find a network I want to use as KNetworkmanager didn't display it.
