Bug Description

Steps to reproduce:

1. Choose a WPA2 (PEAP MSCHAPv2) enterprise connection to connect to
2. Browse and add a certificate from the certificates field
3. Click Ok to connect
4. Network manager tries for a long time and fails to connect
5. Now go back and touch the same network from Network/WiFi section in pulldown shade
6. Observe Wifi Settings screen open, keyboard popup shortly and Wifi settings crash

Most annoyingly, once you get into this state there is no way to access this network anymore. The only way is to re-flash the device.

Thanks, John. I do believe we have a bug for this somewhere, and I think I know what the cause is. As for workaround, I think it should suffice to remove ~/.local/share/ubuntu-system-settings/wifi if it exist.
