Preview Release & NetworkManager

Two days ago I did an anaconda upgrade of latest F8 to Preview Release, 
then did an additional update from rawhide.  With F8 I used 
NetworkManager exclusively to manage my wired and wireless connections.

Is this the expected behavior in F9?

1) Wired ethernet (eth0) does not take precedent over wireless even if 
connected during boot time.

2) Wired ethernet, noted as "auto ethernet" is grayed out and cannot be 
selected from the panel icon

And if this is the expected behavior (which seems like a regression to 
me) how am I supposed to enable eth0?

I know eth0 is good because I just used it to enable rescue mode when I 
lost grub after a failed resume from hibernate... good times!
