Or see the changelog of NetworkManager-0.7.0.99-3:

- Missing ONBOOT should actually mean ONBOOT=yes (rh #489422)

Bug #489422 is "No network after last NM update"

Well, the levels aren't really used my many maintainers (though maybe
they are for RHEL bugs, which 470477 is...).  But aside from that, the
NM release on Fedora fixes the bug that a missing ONBOOT parameter is
treated differently in NM than it was by the network service.  I can't
see how having ONBOOT=no and NM not starting that device could be
construed as an NM bug though.  It's perhaps a bug if some tool is
automatically writing the ONBOOT=no into the ifcfg file when it
shouldn't be.

In any case, I'm glad you found the solution. :)
