Agreed. Back a couple months ago I was updating my home system over SSH
and when it updated network-manager it cheerfully downed the interface
and broke the connection, which in turn interrupted the upgrade process
so that the interface didn't come back /up/ either.

I don't know if that's been fixed in more recent versions; needless to
say I purged it and everything associated and haven't touched it since.
