Bug Description

Trying to login on my wireless network using WPA2 enterprise + TLS doesn't seem to work because of two UI issues:

1) I'm unable to select a .key file as my private key (workaround is to rename it to .pem)
2) Even once everything is selected, the UI won't let me click Save

Same files but used to connect to VPN work fine as shown in that screenshot.

We kind of know what's up, there's an issue with allowing password-less certificates, and there's definitely an extension missing that should be allowed.

I can fix it in two passes; it should be simple enough to enable the extra .key extension, and fixing password-less certificates can be dealt with as a separate bug (I'm certain there is at least one, if not many, already open).

network-manager-applet (0.9.0-0ubuntu3) oneiric; urgency=low

  * debian/patches/clear-notification-actions.patch: clear actions tied to
    notifications being sent; otherwise stacking notifications also causes the
    attached actions to be stacked (resulting in multiple "Don't show this"
    buttons appearing in the notification bubble. (LP: #606825)
  * debian/control: drop gnome-bluetooth to Suggests. (LP: #844027)
  * debian/patches/key-certificate-extensions.patch: allow using a key
    certificate with a .key extension in network security dialogs. (LP: #839864)
