Yeah, this seem to happened post beta. As a positive side effect of
making one of my authenticated wired connection system wide, nm stopped
firing up 'System eth0' (wasn't it called 'auto eth0' in F10?), which I
didn't want it to because I need to properly authenticate first to be
given network connection that I can use to connect to the world (and not
just a selected number of local sites directly related to setting up the
authenticated connection). (and having to click on the proper connection
after every boot is tiring...) :-) I am not sure though (as I didn't
tested that) when actually nm gets connected, but when I log in to
desktop and check if the connection is the correct one, it's already
connected...
