This is not about being picky or not, it's about common sense.

Yes I have given some thoughts about that feature and can't find any reason to have the Network Manager asking the user password each time I logon on. Another "great" idea would be to have a "OOo Manager" that asks user passowrd each time he/she wants to open a text document... or a "Terminal Manager" that asks user password each time he/she opens a terminal...

I did not submitted a bug becasue this is not a bug, it is just part of Network Manager in Gnome. In other words, it's there by design.

Of course I have the option of stop using Gnome but I LIKE Gnome and this annoying security feature is out of the simplicity scope Gnome is looking for.

I think Ubuntu is a great distro, really; but zealotry about Ubuntu remembers me the time of Red Hat 5/6/7, where any criticism about the distro is seen as anti-Linux/OSS propaganda.

Actually I don't think it's a bug, it's just a missing feature -- password keyring support.

If the Network Manager supported the GNOME keyring, there would be little reason to ask for the password each time (unless you wanted to) since that's what the keyring is for.

I expected that the Network Manager will get keyring support eventually, but it wouldn't hurt if you sumbitted this as a feature request since it gives developers an idea of how much interest there is in this feature.

Keyring support is forthcoming and has been discussed on the Network Manager mailing lists.
