Today my eduroam config was suddenly missing, which is especially annoying since setting this up again is a bit cumbersome. (For that reason I used to keep a backup of the settings file in /var/lib/connman but it seems it did not survive moving to /home/.system/var/lib/connman/.)

The original reason seems to be some faulty access point, which is of course unrelated to SF. However, this eventually caused SF to believe my wifi password was wrong (it showed a notification about that). I assume this is when it decided to just delete the config as a whole, although there was actually nothing wrong with it.

I am not exactly sure, but there seems to be at least one bug here. First something went wrong in dealing with the network problem, "wrong password" was definitely not the issue here. And then deleting the whole configuration does not seem appropriate here. Assuming the password actually was wrong, I should not have to input all the other parameters again. Just imagine your are required to change your password every month and thus SF makes you repeat the whole setup every time.
