That because it is not a bug, it is a feature and it is working as designed.

It is/was broken on my system since both of my network cards get random MAC 
addresses on each boot (hardware issue best I can tell), but it is easily 
fixed by writing a couple of udev rules to assign eth0 and eth1 by PCI address 
instead of MAC address.

It is generated by 75-persistent-net-generator.rules.
