I had not tried that.  I had tried booting and assumed that would also
restart the network.  So I tried your suggestion.  That did in fact set eth0
to the desired static IP while producing this error message:

"Running /etc/init.d/networking restart is deprecated because it may not
enable again some interfaces ... (warning)."

However, on rebooting I was once again assigned the dynamic IP
In case it matters, I'll mention that I'm running Wheezy.  The kernel just
moved up to 3.0.0-1-686-pae on Friday, but this IP problem predates that.
