Bug Description

Since I updated to raring ringtail, network-manager forgets which networks to connect to.

I have defined several connections in network manager. For example for my wired connection I have one connection named 'home' which uses a static ip, and once named 'work' which uses another static ip, and one named 'dhcp' which uses dhcp.

Pre-raring this worked fine, since NM remembered which connection was used last and picked that again, so that If I stay at home and turn on my laptop it will pick the 'home' network each time after I have selected it once.

In raring this is different, NM always picks the first connection from the list instead of the conection used last time. This means I have to manually change the network *each time* I connect to a network, instead of only hen I change locations.

Tis is not wired network specific: at work we use several different wifi AP's with different names, one for an internal network and one for internet access. I want to connect to the 'internet' AP most of the time, but since the internal is first in the list NM now picks that one each time.
