I've been using 12.04LTS on my laptop for a while now, with automatic security patches etc. etc. I use wired ethernet at work, and wifi at home. Until recently both worked seamlessly and without any fuss.
However now I find that Network manager will not re-connect to my home wifi, and when I use "Edit connections" to check the settings, I see that it has loaded my LOGIN password into the WiFi password field!
This is a major security concern for me, because NM should have NO knowledge of my login password, as well as because I understand NM stores what it thinks is network passwords in cleartext.
I've often had to completely delete all my previous wifi connections and manually connect up to my home router again, typing in my Wifi password to make the connection.
Is anyone else suffering with this bug? Any fixes?
I've done some google searching, and on here, and other places, and no-one seems to have reported anything quite like it.
