Description of problem:
Network configuration crashes on "Apply" if a modem connection has been set up
with a password containing an internal space/blank. It saves correctly on the
first "add" but will not edit, delete or add another connection after that.
Problem is with /etc/ppp/pap-secrets file. Deleting this file clears the
problem. Dump indicates "end-quote not found"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up modem (ppp) connection with password containing space such as "pass
word". Save and exit program.
2. Re-enter Network Configuration and edit the previously created connection.
Click "Apply" on outer dialog.
Actual Results: Program crashes when "Apply" is clicked. Changes are not
saved. Files are corrupted so that connection is inoperable.
Dump indicates "close quote not found" in /etc/ppp/pap-secrets. Deleting this
file clears the problem and allows the connection to be rebuilt.
