Bug Description

After suspending and resuming, periodically wpasupplicant fails to reauthenticate. I'm prompted for a password to reconnect. I enabled debugging for wpasupplicant. Something that draws attention is seeing "wlan0: WPA: 4-Way Handshake failed - pre-shared key may be incorrect". This is with the Ubuntu 14.04 OEM image for the Dell Precision 5510. All updates have been installed.
