Re: ifcfg-* files vanishing

Nuts... that explains that then :(

I guess this isn't a problem if you're using NetworkManager (since no ifcfg-* files are needed), but NetworkManager also has it's own problems at the moment. Although, when I was using NetworkManager I had the problem that when the device reappears you get a default ifcfg-* file which causes the boot process to sit there trying to get a DHCP lease off an 802.11 card that has no ESSID set (so it could never work), so this is still a problem.
