There's some notes about fixing this in the TODO file in git if anyone
wants to have a go.  We also need more information from wpa_supplicant
when things fail, like getting notifications of assoc/auth timeouts so
that we can do the intelligent thing here and *not* pop up the dialog
when auth times out, but only pop up the dialog when we're sure it's
actually a failure of the password/PSK.  So basically we need both some
wpa_supplicant work here and some NM work.  But it's clearly behavior we
need to fix.
