I think "disable" means you need to tell network-manager that
it's not managing that interface.  I think I at least once
saw that after I stopped it manually it was restarted automaticly
over dbus or something.

I've set things up in /etc/network/interfaces, and that seems
to be having the effect that network-manager doesn't manage
that interface.
