If NetworkManager can't connect to one of the networks that I've set up for automatic connections, it will start what appears to me to be randomly picking nearby networks and trying to connect to them. After I tell it to forget all the networks it tried and failed to connect to, it will still try to connect to random networks. I've checked in /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/ and there are no networks listed that I don't actually want.

Does anyone know how to fix this?
