At university we use 802.1x with EAP-TTLS to connect our wlan. The
login and password are the same as for mail, printing and everything
else. If i use wpa_supplicant and wpa_gui to connect, i have to enter
my password. But after connection is completed i can the the plaintext
password in wpa_gui edit network menu.
To correct this problem i have attached a small patch. It compiles
fine with 0.4.6 and cvs for me. This patch closes bug #81
The patch is only for qt3 gui, but should work with qt4 too.
