Ticket #1138 (closed defect: duplicate)
"Ignoring" WEP/WPA passphrase dialog makes Sugar unresponsive

Description (last modified by tomeu) (diff)
How to reproduce:
1. Try to connect to a WEP/WPA secured WLAN you don't have (or don't remember) the passphrase for.
2. When the passphrase dialog turns up, press F3 to switch to the home view.
3. Press F1 to switch back to the neighborhood view.
As the dialog is modal, Sugar will refuse to do _anything_ at all (except switching views) until it has been completed. But after you switched screens, the passphrase dialog is gone (probably "behind" the neighborhood view), so no way to do that.
What I expected:
If the dialog must be modal at all, it should be restricted to the neighborhood view. Looking up the password by opening Terminal and running gpg should be possible.
Also, the passphrase dialog should reappear when switching back (probably just another metacity-triggered layering bug).
