  Cannot connect to wifi having short password

Status in network-manager package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I can't connect to a wifi network with security "WPA & WPA2 Personal"
  and a password of 7 ASCII characters. Of course this password is
  invalid, but I can't change that, and I should be able to connect
  anyway. Actually I could connect the first time, and after that it
  wouldn't enable the "connect" button anymore. I hope we're not in the
  business of policing other people's wifi... I really can't configure
  their system, but if you relax the constraints on your side, then I
  can have wifi access and work on my PhD project. Thanks for
  considering the net value of policing other people.
