Description

In joyride-2301, it looks like we get NetworkManager into a tight loop by trying to connect to our "canopy" WPA AP:

Aug 25 23:04:48 localhost NetworkManager: <info>  Activation (eth0/wireless): ac
cess point 'canopy' is encrypted, but NO valid key exists.  New key needed.
Aug 25 23:04:48 localhost NetworkManager: <info>  Activation (eth0) New wireless
 user key requested for network 'canopy'.

It actually was joyride-2230.

With 8.2-767, latest firmware, I connected to canopy fine. Sugar was happy. If this shows up again, we can raise priority.

  • Priority changed from blocker to high

Hrr, this kind of thing worries me. Why would we think this is fixed? Isn't the fact that NM is willing to infinite-loop instead of realizing that its key is failing worth fixing?

I think I would do a code review of this as blocker.

Just a note: Canopy is WEP (not WPA)
