I had same problem and simply turned off NetworkManager. I wanted to
use wlan0 as an access point (with hostapd), not a wi-fi client, but
every time I plugged in the USB dongle, NM would come along and grab
it and interfere with my hostapd setup.

I have never yet been able to leave NetworkManager enabled on any
of my systems. It always winds up screwing up something, and it
is vastly simpler to fix the problems by turning it off and
going back to network.
