Apply button disabled when using an ad-hoc network with WPA/WPA2 security

Bug Description

When trying to create a new Ad-Hoc network using WPA2 security, the Apply button stays disabled even after putting a password in. I am pretty sure this is the only thing stopping the network from being created, as changing the security option to None re-enables the Apply button. See attached screenshot for clarification.

Just to be sure, the password has to be at least 8 characters long.

Yep, I can confirm that the password was shorter than 8 characters. It'd be good to get a specific error message about this limit, as I wasn't aware it existed. Should I re-work this bug to the new "bug" (that no notification was given as to why the apply button was disabled) or open a new somewhere?

Thanks for your help! :)
