Hi Dave,

thanks for taking the time to report this. Details are important :)
I'm not familiar with the codebase, but I tracked down the bug to be in the
package network-manager-applet.

Would you please file a bug?
Click on "Report a bug" on the right ^


On this basis, it should be  Primary, Secondary and Tertiary (not Ternary)
