It looks like you have configured wpa_supplicant to update its
configuration file (update_config=1) based on dynamic changes. If you
select a particular network (e.g., with wpa_cli select_network command
or wpa_gui), all the other networks will be disabled to force the
specified network to be used. This will also affect the configuration
file when update_config=1 is used.
