Description of problem:
PIN/Password dialogue for Mobile Broadband forces user to enter password, even if it's not needed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Plug 3G dongle.
2. Wait for Mobile Broadband interface in network applet.
3. Try connect using Mobile Broadband.
4. Insert PIN only.
Dialogue asking for PIN/Password pops-up. User can't confirm dialogue, until he input both PIN and Password. In reality some mobile operators doesn't require password to connect to their network. Workaround is to input some random password, at least with one particular operator.
Dialogue should not force user to input something that is not needed and user don't even know what type in. Dialogue should let user confirm even with empty fields.
Need to test this behaviour also with PIN disabled.
