Yes! I do too:
Cell 03 - Address: 00:0F:3D:EE:5C:DC
Frequency:2.412 GHz (Channel 1)
Quality=47/94 Signal level=-48 dBm Noise level=-95 dBm
Bit Rates:1 Mb/s; 2 Mb/s; 5.5 Mb/s; 11 Mb/s; 6 Mb/s
12 Mb/s; 24 Mb/s; 36 Mb/s; 9 Mb/s; 18 Mb/s
48 Mb/s; 54 Mb/s
Cell 05 - Address: 00:0F:3D:EE:5C:DC
Frequency:5.32 GHz (Channel 64)
Quality=32/94 Signal level=-63 dBm Noise level=-95 dBm
Bit Rates:6 Mb/s; 9 Mb/s; 12 Mb/s; 18 Mb/s; 24 Mb/s
36 Mb/s; 48 Mb/s; 54 Mb/s

In my case one network is on (a) and another is (b/g). It works for
me MOSTLY... But NM doesn't always connect properly on first-login
after a reboot.. I think it might depend on whether it sees the ihtfp
or ihtfp-a network first in its scanning.

Yeah, I've always considered that a bug.
Another (similar but different) issue I've seen is where you can't
specify a particular a or b/g network. When I go to the IETF meetings
they have both (a) and (b/g) networks all with the same ESSID, and
there's no way in NM to specify "I want the (a) network".
