how reproducible is it?

any chance you could install dbus-glib-debuginfo, dbus-debuginfo, and
NetworkManager-debuginfo, gdb attach to the applet, and then around frame #25
here (impl_connection_settings_get_secrets) print out the value of 'key_name'? 
That would be good for me to know.  The code in question is:

if (key_name != NULL) {
	g_hash_table_insert (secrets,
	                     g_strdup (key_name),
	                     string_to_gvalue (found->secret));
	dbus_g_method_return (context, secrets);

also would be good to know if found->secret looks like what you expect it to
look like (ie, the hex key of your network).  You can hash a passphrase to hex
key using /usr/sbin/wpa_passphrase <ssid> <passphrase> and compare to what the
applet has hashed it into.

Also, once in frame #25, can you try to:


and see if gdb can run that function.  Please attach that output if you can
(obfuscate details of your network if you like).

Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported

doesn't happen again.

Since there are insufficient details provided in this report for us to investigate the issue further, and we have not received feedback to the information we have requested above, we will assume the problem was not reproducible, or has been fixed in one of the updates we have released for the reporter's distribution.

Users who have experienced this problem are encouraged to upgrade to the latest update of their distribution, and if this issue turns out to still be reproducible in the latest update, please reopen this bug with additional information.
