Title:
  nm-applet silently timesout on long 'WPA/WPA2 Personal' password input

Status in Network Manager Applet:
  Confirmed
Status in network-manager-applet package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in network-manager-applet source package in Xenial:
  New

Bug description:
  1)
  ouroumov@Edge:~/Desktop$ lsb_release -rd
  Description:  Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
  Release:      16.04

  2)
  apt-cache policy is unable to locate the package.

  3)
  Upon entering a long WPA/WPA2 Personal password after clicking the network 
icon in the top right panel, the connection should be added to network-manager, 
even if typing the password takes a while.

  4)
  If typing the password takes longer than ~25 seconds, upon clicking the 
"Connect" button in the password prompt dialog: nothing happens

  Steps to reproduce:

  - Install Ubuntu MATE 16.04 LTS (possibly other Ubuntu flavours using 
nm-applet too)
  - Run normal post-install full system update and reboot
  - Click the network icon in the top right corner of the default panel layout
  - Select from the Wi-Fi network list a network using WPA/WPA2 Personal
  - Enter the password, wait 30 seconds to click 'connect'

  Note:

  While this issue might seem trivial (using 'System -> Preferences ->
  Internet and Network -> Network Connections' allows one to correctly
  save the password) (and quickly copy/pasting the password from a text
  file works too) it is a serious usability problem for many people in
  France.

  The default home router Wi-Fi setup in France is WPA/WPA2 Personal
  with a random 26-character hexadecimal password. It takes a while to
  type.
