The /etc/wicd/encryption/templates/eap template incorrectly uses '-' characters instead of '_' characters in some configuration parameter names. It is a simple typo, but it prevents fast eap from working. Patch attached.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attempt to connect to a EAP-FAST wireless endpoint
2. Fails with "bad password", even when the password is correct

fixes typos in eap profile
tested successfully with net-misc/wicd-1.7.0 and net-wireless/wpa_supplicant-0.7.1
I discovered the solution by reading https://bugs.launchpad.net/wicd/+bug/261804 which describes two problems: (1) the lack of quotation marks around the username and password and (2) the typos that this bug refers to. The quotation marks seem to be fixed, but the typos remain.
Thanks, upstream has checked it into the repo. I'll commit it to gentoo when time allows.
Marking for Bugday, please make it a revision bump (-r1).
assigning to new maintainer.
The patch has been applied upstream and is delivered in >=wicd-1.7.1_beta2.
