I just re-encountered the problem on 8.2.1. Briefly:
- There is an existing connection (in my case, ethernet).
- That connection gets broken (e.g., by clicking another access)
- The replacement access does not connect
- Connecting as before is attempted, but with unusable parameters
In my case one thoughtless click in Neighborhood View caused loss of
my ethernet connection, and I needed a restart to connect again.
In view of the consequences (user reboots ?) of this problem, please
re-evaluate the decision to not make this problem a blocker for 8.2.
[My concern is that "substitution of unusable parameters" (from
zeroconf?) might occur after a "new connection" attempt fails, even
when the "connection that was working earlier" was not ethernet.]
