Are you suggesting to manually edit the "/etc/init.d/network-manager"  
script header to fit my needs? Correct me if I'm wrong, but I expect this 
file (as any file located here) can be updated at any time and so 
replacing any of the customized values I can have written in there :-?

I can try it though, just want to be sure this is not going to cause any 
problem in the future :-)

Oh, and thanks both, Mike and you, for replying.
