It has an IP address.  It must have been configured.  It is listed as
dhcp.  So it must have gotten a DHCP address.  Which seems to me like
it *is* actually being managed by networm-manager.  Right?

What is your routing table?

  $ netstat -nr

Or use 'ip' which is the new interface.

  $ ip addr show
  $ ip route show

I am wondering if the latest network-manager is perhaps bringing up
both interfaces simultaneously?  That has some advantages.  But would
be a change from the Lenny version.  And since I am behind I haven't
been tracking the changes in Sid and would have missed this behavior
change if it had gone in.

By the way...  If you would be so kind as to edit and trim your
replies it would be appreciated.
