[Bug 5364] Re: Can't use static ip address with network-manager (and thus no VPN connections menu for static users)

I have the same problem.  Moved from 7.10 to 8.04.  /etc/interfaces is:

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

iface dsl-provider inet ppp
pre-up /sbin/ifconfig eth0 up # line maintained by pppoeconf
provider dsl-provider

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
address 172.16.2.3
netmask 255.255.255.0
gateway 172.16.2.1

I know, since eth0 is listed here nm will not handle it.  But it is nm
the one that writes the stanza!  And it worked perfectly in 7.10.

My problem is that no contextual menu shows for dsl (pppoe on eth0) if
there is a static IP for eth0.  The applet only shows manual.  If I
switch to roaming, then the contextual menu behaves correctly.
