Network Manager and ADSL Dynamic IP

A couple of days ago upgraded to Feisty and can't auto connect to ADSL 
provider anymore.

Network Manager reports DNS correctly (probably from 
System/Administration/Network) but assigns an IP for a (non existent) 
local net such as: /

After "poff dsl-provider" and "pon dsl-provider" in terminal, connection 
is restored and dynamic IPs are correctly assigned such as: (local) / (remote).

Plog and Ifconfig confirm true net status.

Network Manager keeps reporting active network but with the same fake 
local IPs.

Kept  etc/network/interfaces trimmed to the minimum with no reference to 
eth, but it didn't seem to make any difference but clear the 
System/Administration/Network/WiredConnections option.

Previous 6.10 version was working perfectly with pppoeconf.

Did not find this bug reported anywhere. Maybe anything related to 
previous scripts left by 6.10 install?
