Basically the same problem here. I can create a new static wired connection and then connect to it by left clicking on the network-manager icon and then choosing my newly created connection. Everything works fine. Then I reboot and it automatically reverts me to using a DHCP connection called "Auto eth0". This problem has been present for me since 8.10 alpha 6. I would have created a bug report about it, but I thought this was a known issue: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/network-manager/+bug/256054

Guess they're not the same issue really...
