You are right, I'm seeing this problem on my ubuntu laptop as well.
Unfortunately, I think this doesn't happen for me all the time, but
quite often. I'm still investigating whats different at boot-time to
configuring them manually..
btw, Scott told me that ubuntu was going away from ifupdown for edgy,
the next release. Perhaps this issue is solved then that way. We'll see.
