Public bug reported:

Hardware: Sony Vaio fs115b, 512MB, Intel 915GMA, Intel HDA, Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG, Intel 82562ET/EZ/GT/GZ - PRO/100 VE
Software: Kubuntu 9.04, Alpha 3 + updates to date
KnetworkManager v1:0.7svn864988-0ubuntu8

After a boot from cold my wireless network is found and I am logged on properly (after kwallet password). However, when I left click the knetworkmanager icon in the tray I see three instances of my wireless network showing. The display shows me connected to one, at the top, but there are two other ones, showing the same name and signal (to noise?) level, that seem to be unnecessary. If I open Manage Connections I can see two entries, the same connection name (my  network) but with dates 2 days ago (when I last used the computer) and 10 days ago. This seems to account for the three instances, when you add my current connection. 
I have booted the computer several times over 10 days so it is not that I get a new instance every reboot. 
Is this connected with updates, recent updates not clearing old connection instances before creating new ones?
