Why does "Network Connections" not show all my nics?

I have two nics in my ubuntu 10.04 LTS but its only showing one in "Network Connections" called "auto eth0".

The system seems to know about both connections because when I type "ifconfig" it lists eth0 and eth1. I need to run wireshark on eth1 but the gui doesn't seem to know about it. Any help?

If I remember correctly, I think Network Manager leaves any NIC configured manually in /etc/network/interfaces alone and doesn't manage it.  So, if one is defined manually and the other not, only one will show up in Network Manager.
