Description of problem:

Password to unlock certificate is logged to /var/log/messages

May 29 19:46:42 localhost NetworkManager[4791]: destroy_one_secret: destroying
********

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

NetworkManager-openvpn-0.8.999-1.fc15.x86_64


Additional info:

I would love to have the option to type the password at connection time instead
of it being stored, but adding the password to the system log is wrong
