Ubuntu connects to wrong network after sleep

Bug Description

When coming back from sleep, the system tries to connect to a different WiFi network, although the previously used network is still available. Since I usually don't have credentials for the other networks in range, a window pops up, which is very annoying. I'd expect ubuntu/NetworkManager to try to connect to the previously used network first. I believe this was the default behavior before Oneric, but I'm not sure.

(I would guess gnome 2.xx used to coordinate going to sleep/waking up with NetworkManager, and this was removed/broken with the transition to Gnome 3 or Oneric. Now, NetworkManager just sees that the connection is lost, and does what it always does, and picks the next available network.)
