I have noticed this too, and actually it has caused some weird issues. I
use the Zend IDE for developing PHP applications, and more specifically
for its interactive debugger.
Well, if you invoke the debugger via a browser when both wired and
wireless are connected at the same time, the system goes into weirdspace
and basically hangs. You cannot kill the browser, cannot kill the
debugger and something deep inside either the server or the IDE has to
timeout (about 5 minutes) before control is passed back to me. I guess
the server cannot determine where the request originated from as the IDE
will respond from 2 valid IP addresses.

Ubuntu 8.10 with NM 0.7.0...
