 connections, see SL 1884).

 That's not true - it runs its own settings service, like sugar, unless you
 tick a certain box in one of the advanced per-connection dialogs in which
 case the system service is used for that specific connection.

 it was originally asked to try.  Once it achieves a connection, it stops

 Could well be the case that it tries them in order.

 I'm not so sure.
 If the user connects to A, then B, then suspends, both of those connection
 objects will be on the bus, and NM might pick A instead of B.

 > The problem can also be solved by using the System Settings for

 At least in Fedora, the system settings service doesn't support WPA/WPA2
 without some special configuration that moves it away from the Fedora
 style config into a NM-specific beast. (It would of course be easy to set
 up this configuration on every distribution of Sugar, but it's a bit
 questionable IMO)
