ifup does not bring up interfaces marked as allow-hotplug unless it
gets some kind of hotplug event. That does not happen on boot with 
my pci-e wifi card.

I think it's probably a d-i bug that it seems to mark such interfaces as
allow-hotplug. However:

a. Would you really want laptops' wireless interfaces to be
   managed by ifupdown on a system with network-manager, by default?

b. squeeze is heavily frozen, and it is far, far to late in the release
   cycle to be making big changes to either d-i or network-manager.
