Bug#602473: general: cannot change dhcp address to static

Package: general
Severity: important

I cannot chage manually IP address in /etc/network/interfaces, after bring
interface down with ifconfig eth0 down I manually edit above maentioned file
allow-hotplug eth0
iface eth0 inet static
address xxx.xxx.xx.xx and so on and after bringing up command on eth0 
host wont connent any more or still hanging on dhcp. Ifconfig eth0 still
showing DHCP address, it will change only after restarting host.
Also '/etc/init.d/networking restart' doesnt work, after that host 
just dont want connect any more.

best wishes ivan
