Screenshot: ambiguity for one interface's view of an SSID with multiple BSSIDs

My initial connection to SSID 'piano' was with wifimgr-1.17 – probably with
wlan0 and without enabling wlan1 in rc.conf – and I enabled: 

☑ Any BSSID

----

With 1.17.7 and wlan1 enabled, after _disabling_ 
☐ Any BSSID 
there's the green icon of connectivity for wlan1 for same SSID, however it's
not enabled, and (half-expected) there's no hint that an encryption key has
been entered. 

>From the manual page for wifimgr(8): 

> … When the "Save" button is clicked, the enabled networks are 
> written back out to the wpa_supplicant.conf(5) file and the network 
> interface is restarted. …

In this case, it's unclear what will be the effect of 
☑ Enabled 
for the upper of the two listings (the BSSID that's currently at channel 1)
because if I understand correctly, the Konsole window in the background shows
an _already enabled_ connection to channel 1.
