Arrrgh!

I'd say this is extremely critical because
 - it happens not only when configuration changes, but also between reboots 
without any changes
 - most modern PC have more than one interfaces because the firewire 
interface is detected as a network device, too.
 - it will render servers in remote locations randomly unaccessible after 
reboot, and people not familiar with udev will be absolutely stumped as to 
why even if they get access again after the next reboot...

I hope this will be solved soon!
