Description of problem:
Network Configuration fails to parse Init3 strings which contain an equals sign
- sets the initialization string to zero length instead

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Gnome (icon)... Programs... System... Network Configuration
2.Add... Modem Connection... Next
3.Phone Number: 123, Provider Name: 123, Login Name: 123, Password: 123  Next...
4.Choose 123, Edit... Advanced(tab)
5.Set Initialization String: AT+CGDCONT   OK... Apply... Close
6.Repeat step 1
7.Select device 123   Edit... Advanced(tab)
8.Verify Initialization String is okay
9.Open /etc/wvdial.conf in your favourite editor
10.Locate section [Dialer 123]
11.Locate entry Init3
12.Append "=1"
13.Save file, and close
14.Repeat steps 1 and 7
15.Verify that the Initialization string is now blank (=bug)

Actual Results:  Initialization string blank

Expected Results:  Initialization string should read AT+CGDCONT=1

Additional info:

There seems to be bug associated with
/usr/share/redhat-config-network/netconfpkg/ in the way that it
handles the Init3 string.
