If you have the 'auto' stanza in /etc/network/interfaces for the card
device (e.g. 'auto eth0') then you will see this happen. In that case,
take out the auto stanza. 

For PCMCIA NICs you must let the PCMCIA startup script bring up the
card and not the networking script. The latter processes the auto
stanza, and it also runs *before* the PCMCIA script which is why you
can't use 'auto.'
