Yes, it is running on each of the two machines.

Doing just this:
  cd /etc/init.d; network-manager stop; networking restart

gave me the desired static IP.  Then I ran this:

cd /etc/rc3.d; mv S03network-manager K97network-manager

rebooted and again got the desired static IP.

So assuming I won't miss network-manager, all is well.  I still don't
understand why the other box, which is still running network-manager and a
static IP, doesn't have this problem.  They're both running updated Wheezy.

Anyway, now I can get back to my real job.  Thanks again.
