#10021: Impossible to change WPA/WEP settings and passphrase

 * Setup an AP with WPA or WPA2 encryption, with a passphrase
 * Connect to it from XO giving the right passphrase
 * On the AP, change the passphrase
 * On the XO, reconnect. The reconnect will try to use the stored
 passphrase, fail, and ask for a new passphrase. However, NM ignores the
 new passphrase.

 Similar issues are likely to exist with changing between no encryption,

 This has been seen on 8.2.x builds. Due to legacy NM, this is very hard to
 diagnose and fix. Sugar is doing the right thing and passing the correct
 passphrase to the NM callback.
