This was before 0.084-4.

Interesting, can you try to debug why this happens?
It's only cosmetic, but unusual.

I think we can be positively sure that write_net_rules did not invent
these MAC addresses by itself, so if it created rules for eth0 and eth1
with two different MAC addresses there has to be a reason.
eth2 looks like a firewire interface.

So I suppose that your current ethernet card was 00:0b:2f:6d:19:2b and
it was renamed to eth1?

Just asking the maintainer works too, I am not sure if this is a topic of
general interest. Send mail or look for me on IRC if you need more help.
