Unfortunately that didn't work, although the first command does report 
that the EAP_wpa_preshared_passphrase is set.

But is that the right field?

In the interface, "WPA pre-shared key" and WPA with EAP" are two 
mutually-exclusive settings for "Security Method", and I'm using WPA 
with EAP because that's what the network uses.
