Connecting to WiFi Network with hidden SSID

In order to connect to a network with hidden SSID (i.e. that does not broadcast it) in OS X 10.5 (in 10.6.8 this issue has been solved) the network must be configured each time we want to connect, even if the network appears in the advanced configuration preferences.

To the moment the best solution I've found is to forces the connection with the following shell command:
sudo /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Apple80211.framework/Versions/A/Resources/airport --associate=yourHiddenSSID --password=yourkey
