[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:
iface lo inet loopback
iface dsl-provider inet ppp
pre-up /sbin/ifconfig eth0 up # line maintained by pppoeconf
iface eth0 inet static
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.
