Bug Description

Try to set up TLS connection using KDE native NetworkManager.
Choose 802.1x Security tab, choose "TLS" in "Authentication:" combobox and fill all its fields, even if all key info valid, kde-nm-connection-editor does not save changes and writes to /var/log/syslog these messages

Dec 10 12:40:43 DimanNeYa NetworkManager[894]: Error setting certificate (invalid data): (1) client-cert
Dec 10 12:40:43 DimanNeYa NetworkManager[894]: Error setting private key (invalid data): (1) private-key

BUT(!!!) if you accomplish all these actions in nm-applet (from package network-manager-gnome) then all start working! It will successfully create connection, this connection will be visible for kde-nm-connection-editor...

PS And even now, when connection created by nm-applet and I have working internet, I can not fill "Private Key password:" field, ie I can fill it, but after I press "Ok" all changes disgarded
