This was a graphical install of debian-wheezy-DI-rc1-i386-netinst.iso on
a Dell Precision M65 laptop, using Swedish localisation, and with
non-free iwl3945 wireless drivers loaded from a USB stick during

The installation completed fine but I had two minor issues/concerns:

1) The WLAN password is displayed on screen.  User account passwords are
not displayed on screen, so presumably it is a bug for WLAN passwords to
be displayed.  Bonus points for a "Display password" button to toggle
display of the password.

2) Wouldn't it be possible to auto-detect WEP vs PSK2 instead of asking?
