i'm just going to take a guess here. my guess is it might have somethign
to do with the fact your mixing a static and nonstatic (dhcp) address on
the same interface.  for grins, try giving em1 a static address too and
see if the behavior is the same.. this is totally a guess btw. :)  i'm not
a big fan of networkmanager regardless.

No difference...but I did see in some fedora docs that alias does not support
the alias side being dhcp, only static. From what I found, if one interface
must be dhcp, then it has to be the non-alias. In the past, with older fedora
distros, I've always set the primary to dhcp and the aliases to static.
