I wasn't saying that you should use "ip" to set up an address but to check it.
NM will use the ifupdown settings in "/etc/network/interfaces" to
bring up and set up an interface (although I'm not sure that it'll
know to assign two ip addresses to one interface that way) if you
change "managed=false" to "managed=true" in the "[ifupdown]" section
of "/etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf". But NM won't change the
settings in "/etc/network/interfaces".
