No, it wasn't clear (to me).
I was 100% of what I wrote when I wrote it and am now 99% sure. Since
I was writing from memory, I'll have check the docs and find
references to NM and ifup being managed/unmanaged.
Maybe your NIC's being brought up by "/etc/init.d/networking" (since
it's defined in "/etc/network/interfaces") and not by
"/etc/init.d/network-manager". (Can "/etc/init.d/networking" and
"/etc/init.d/network-manager" be enabled simultaneously by insserv?)
