Depends on whether the "debian" backend supports static IP setup with
NM. The backend appears to support that. But ubuntu has added on some
custom hacks that may affect this functionality, specifically blocking
devices you have already configured with your system administration
tools from being seen by NM. This may be the problem, and you'll need
to take that up with the Ubuntu maintainer of the NM package since
that's an Ubuntu-specific patch and not part of NM.
