it's not a bug, they force your phone to connect so it uses wifi instead of cell network, you can't disable it without root, even if you turn off "auto connect".
You can edit the values with Root Explorer to get rid of it though
open Root Explorer
mount as R/W
go to data/misc/wpa_supplicant.conf
open wpa_supplicant.conf with text editor
(this is a list that tells the phone what order to connect to, so you'll notice that the "attwifi" named one is above your usual home wifi network, that tells the phone to always connect to ANY wifi spot called "attwifi" over other network. Also notice where it says "key_mgmt=NONE"? That means it's coded to connect to any access point...ANY
access point, named "attwifi". So if you hate your neighbors and they have ATT, rename your router "attwifi" and their phones will connect to it automatically and you can have your way with them
delete the set of coding that says:
enjoy secure wifi
