[Pkg-utopia-maintainers] Bug#528819: network-manager-gnome: network manager stops connecting wifi when dummy0 specified in interfaces file

Package: network-manager-gnome
Version: 0.6.6-4
Severity: normal

I'm putting vservers onto this laptop, and in the networking 
configuration, they suggest making dummy0 and having that provide 
routing. This works fine if done using ifconfig manually. If done using 
/etc/network/interfaces, it makes the networkmanager applet stop being 
connected to wifi.
