[Pkg-utopia-maintainers] Bug#433734: network-manager: Doesn't ignore wlan0 interface even though it is configured in /e/n/i

Package: network-manager
Version: 0.6.4-8+b1
Severity: important

Hash: SHA1

Every time I log in, network-manager tears down my already-existing
network connection and tries to associate with my AP itself. But it will
never succeed as the driver I am using is rt2500 which does not support
the API that n-m tries to use.

Relevant lines from /etc/network/interfaces:

auto wlan0=basil
iface basil inet dhcp
wireless-essid basil
wireless-key '0123456789'
