I feared that this one in particular would be too difficult to fix
completely, but what about ensuring that the password prompt has a "save
password for future use" checkbox, so the password only has to be
entered once per encrypted wifi network? Some password prompts include
this checkbox, and some do not. I realize this approach would involve
more than adding a checkbox to a dialog, but I kept this bug a paper cut
in hopes that it could be fixed with subtle keyring settings changes.
If you don't believe a trivial solution will be found, please mark
invalid in hundredpapercuts and mark the bug as affecting project
ayatana (we are collecting usability bugs there). Feel free to choose
another paper cut to round out our 10 for the week :)
