network manager recreates/reenables auto connection

network-manager (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

no matter what I try each logon the network manager creates an automatic dhcp connection overriding the static connection made for this machine

I've tried leaving it alone but having it not automatically connect and having the static connection settings connect automatically

I've tried deleting the auto network connection - only to have it be recreated

I've tried changing the auto settings to a static connection and it looses these settings

Moving to right package.

This is not a duplicate - the static connection info is NOT lost like the other duplicates mention

as well as the *preserved* static connection I get a new auto connection which is used instead of the
existing static connection
