nm-applet is screwing with banshee, says no connection

Hey all,

the nm-applet in my gnome DE on debian testing shows that i have no network connection. I have a network connection, i set it up in /etc/network/interfaces, but since some of my apps look to it to see if there is a connection.. it is causing some trouble.
If i open it where it says edit connections, i have a box that shows the connections, but i cannot edit them, they are disabled. i can't even do it as root

Network manager will report no connection if you have manually configured your Networtk interface using /etc/network/interfaces file.

Best thing to do imho is remove Network-manager .. it's not like you really need it for anything if you are using a static Address.
Aptitude purge network-manager network-manager-gnome

if you must have a graphical network manager I prefer wicd.
