Bug Description

Kubuntu 16.04 ISO number 20160417.1 Xenial Final
Bug reported against network-manager
Every time I tried the live Kubuntu 16.04 image on a Lenovo t420 laptop it requires to enter the wifi password twice before I can use the wifi. Once from the network icon panel, then second time a prompt on the desktop to enter the wifi password.

I do not know if this is typical behavior of Kubuntu since I usually use GTK base desktops.
I guess network-manager is the right package to file this report against.

It asked for the password twice even on a freshly installed system, not just in a live session.

Same issue here when running the live session, and also after a fresh install.
