I'd prefer a separate, new bug report against wpasupplicant.
The original bug report is about disabling mac randomization, so afaics
a different issue from yours.
My problem was exactly the one described here.
With MAC randomization enabled, network manager kept asking for a password.
The workaround mentioned here (disabling MAC randomization) did work
around the problem. But it's just an unsafe workaround, not a solution.
Then I reported the issue to Realtek, and they pinpointed the underlying
bug in wpasupplicant.
After applying their patch in wpasupplicant, there's no need to disable
MAC randomization in network-manager anymore.
I can file a separate issue, but it will have pretty much the same
description, that "when MAC randomization is enabled, network-manager
keeps asking for a password"...
Maybe we can just put "wpasupplicant" in the "affects" list, and when
someone else here confirms what I say, we can then remove
"network-manager"? Unfortunately I'm not familiar with debian bug tags
Btw, another workaround than disabling MAC randomization, is to pass
ifnames=0 in the kernel cmdline, as this then causes USB wifi adapters
to have smaller interface names (wlan0) that do not trigger the
