   How do I stop nn/nm-applet from doing this ?

I believe you can remove the "Auto" from the beginning of the
connection's name to prevent this behavior.  That stops NetworkManager
from trying to automatically connect to that network in the future.
If you don't ever want to connect automatically to anything, you're
clearly outside of NetworkManager's use case and might want to
consider having NM not manage that interface, which you can do by
using system-config-network and turning off NM management on a
particular interface, or by setting "NM_CONTROLLED=no" in

	Right-click on the NM icon in the toolbar
	Click on "Edit Connections"
