Does this crappy software now recognize if the system has no eth0 configured but vlan2, vlan3 and vlan4 on top of eth0? I have some desktops with such configuration, and when I first got involved with this stupid software, it deleted all routes and tried to configure eth0 via DHCP (which obviously failed) leaving the host unreachable.

So I normally disable the software.

I fail to see the reason for Network Manager. If people want to use Windows, they should do it. In Debian interfaces are configured in /etc/network/interfaces, and this file should not be touched by crappy software.

Shade and sweet water!
