Interface lo Not Coming Up

When I boot my PC, the local loopback interface, "lo", does not come
up.  Running 'ifconfig -a' is see it there, but it has not IP

 $ cat /etc/network/interfaces

# /etc/network/interfaces
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp

Once I configure it with ifconfig, all is well:

 # ifconfig lo netmask up

I don't understand why it's not configuring at boot.  Any help is
