The main point is: I've taken the latest Testing-CD installed Debian,
updated it and that's it. I don't remember having intentionally replaced
hotplug by udev or something, if this happened it must have happened
automatically. This somehow feels like either d-i or ifupdown are broken
by default so close before etch becomes stable.
By the way: I've played around with quemu and the new d-i a few weeks
ago and noticed that the resulting Debian/testing system did not bring
up the interface too.

But who has created the allow-hotplug-line? I thought hotplug is dead?
