That's a bug.  I'll check static IP support over again to see if there's 
anything missing.

Because by design, NetworkManager will keep only one connection active at 
a time.  Its not intended for people that need more than one connection 
up, though that may be added at a future date.  The # of people who do 
this was deemed to be quite limited versus the amount of effort that would 
be required to make sure multiple connections worked correctly.
