Bug: Unable to minimize System Settings while entering WLAN password

Apparently it's not possible to minimize the System Settings while the WLAN password prompt is active.

I just came across a situation where I need to enter an impossible-to-remember WPA2 password but the only way to see the password was to photograph it with my Jolla.

Now I'm stuck because I can't access the photo without closing the password prompt and the phone does not store partial passwords - you either get it right in one go or you don't get it at all.

I'm not really sure this is a bug, per se, but I can tell you it bugs me a lot right now! :)

Solution: write down the password as a note, copy to clipboard and paste in password prompt. I am stupid for not realizing this immediately.
