Description Bill Moss 2005-07-27 18:42:44 EDT
Description of problem: NM dies when wrong WEP key entered in the Passphrase dialog

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): CVS HEAD 1.436

How reproducible: Every time

Steps to Reproduce: 
* Login as user with no NM gconf or keyring data stored, NM service running,
nm-applet running, AP broadcasting its essid

* Click on progress bar for AP

* Note the gconf now contains the essid and timestamp

* type wrong HEX WEP key in Passphrase dialog and enter the default keyring
password when prompted. OK

* NM service dies but PID file still exists. nm-applet still running.

* gconf now also contains the key_type

* restart the NM service

* enter correct HEX WEP key.

* connection made and WEP key updated in keyring.
Actual results: NM dies.

Expected results: After a failure to connect, NM should display an error message
telling the user that the WEP key is wrong.

Created attachment 117252 [details]
patch for NetworkManagerDevice.c

The patch fixes the bug reported above. Under the conditions described, the
allowed_ap is NULL at the point when the auth_meth for the allowed_ap is first
updated. This update can be avoided using an if statement.
