Is it not possible to detect a bad passwd in the Handshake of WPA-PSK?
At the moment the wpa_supplicant always get through EAPOL stage 1 and 2 
of handshake
i.e. Stage 3 is never reached.
If possible to detect it would be nice to print a warning that the 
passwd is wrong and then
give up or tray a certain times.
