NetworkManager user agent

When selecting a previously unknown wireless network, I am not getting  
prompted for the password. NetworkManager just complains in  
/var/log/messages that "Access point {name} has security, but secrets are  
required", then gives up.

I figured out that I can launch nm-connection-editor, and find my way to an  
obscure dialog where I can enter the wireless password, but this seems  
wrong. As I recall, selecting an previously unknown network from nm-applet,  
should result in me being automatically prompted for the password, directly.  

Some googling found this:

So, which package contains the user agent that prompts for wireless password?
