[Wireless Network Authentication Required (WPA/WPA2) Dialog]
"re-word message displayed, as it's technically incorrect to talk about
passwords; WPA/WPA2 networks are protected almost always protected by a
passphrase ( 8-63 chars in length ); if the user enters 64 characters,
this is considered a key. "

Indicates that 63 characters should be OK. Perhaps one of the letters
are interpreted as two characters? Don't post the key here (obviously)
but go through the key and see if any of the characters are accented etc.

You might consider filing a bug:
Make up a one-time key that fails and use that as an example to include
in the bug report & then of course change the key immediately afterwards.
