I have a correction on what I said earlier. It is clear that 
things are more complicated then I thought.

When you configure LEAP authentication you are asked foe a user name,
then a passwd and finally you are asked for a passphrase. What appears
in the gnome keyring is the passwd not the passphrase. Previously in NM
a passphrase was not asked for so I am not sure where it is stored.
Probably the same place it is stored for the WEP configuration.

I will try to file a bugzilla but it might not be today.

To err is human -- to blame it on a computer is even more so.
