When looking at the list of wifi networks in the menu bar's wifi icon it seems to show (as indicated by the check mark) that I am connected to a network that I am not actually connected to. The system settings' network page shows the correct network though. Also the list of available networks is much longer when accessed through the menu bar vs. the system settings.

Are these known bugs / expected behaviors?
