Can you reproduce the 'non-detection' by switching back to the old kernel 
with 8139too inbuilt, but with your recent configuration of hotplug, 
/etc/network and /etc/modu{les,tils} ?

This would be very interesting (if your interpretation is correct).
Perhaps there's a chance the new compiled module is another version ?
Kerneldoc/networking/8139too.txt ( for  0.9.17 ) indicates some changings for 
2.4.3 + kernels.
