My Oracle connection doesn't work - for whatever reason whenever I try and "Connect" I get "ORA-12514 - TNS listener does not currently know of the service requested in the connect descriptor."
But that's not the bug.
a) When I press "Connect" I get that error instantly along with the opportunity to enter my Username and password again. As the error isn't "invalid username/password" or similar, why is QGIS asking for my credentials again? It would be better if is it was a dialog that just had the error and an "Ok" option.
b) If I press "cancel" on that error, the same error dialog appears ago. Looking at the Oracle log messages I see that it actually does try and connect again, despite my having pressed "cancel".
