Description of problem:
When attempting to a wep protected wireless network, the NM authentication dialog is presented for entry of the hex wep keys / ascii wep keys / wep passphrase. When you select hex wep keys, the entry field for the key will accept non-hex values.
I can see this being a reasonable behavior if switching between hex/ascii/passphrase saved the value in the field, but this is not the case.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attempt to connect to wep network using NM
2. Wait for authentication dialog, choose hex wep key
3. Enter non-hex values
Actual Results: Non-hex values were accepted as valid input for a hex only field.
Expected Results: Field should have been filtered to 0-F.
