I used to have this problem with Ubuntu until they fixed it in 9.04, so maybe it's a Linux thing and Google just need to get around to fixing it. I had the same problem with my phone, but I just set my SSID to broadcast at home, and haven't yet met the need to get on a hidden WiFi net anywhere else.
