Network-manager doesn't keep preferences

network-manager (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

On my laptop (ubuntu intrepid), I use wifi + wpa + static ip / dns, everything works fine.
On my desktop (ubuntu intrepid too), I use ethernet + static ip /dns.

But I have to reconfigure network-manager after each reboot, because it doesn't keep my preferences (manual/static ip/dns), it always reselect "DHCP".

I disabled for that connection "system preferences" (the second checkbox), and the preferences are kept. But this connection is not selected by default, every reboot it automatically adds "Auto eth0" and "Auto eth1" and connects using DHCP to eth0... instead of using MY configured connection.

Same stuff on running on different computers with amd64 architectures.
No password is asked when trying to modify the "auto eth0" connexion profile.
Don't really know if the problem occurs on x86 32bits architectures.

Same problem here. I try to set up a Static IP, but Intrepid always reverts to DHCP. The static settings are lost and need to be re-entered.
