Scratch that last paragraph, because it's not relevant (although it'd
be interesting to know).

In the script that you posted earlier in this thread, you activate NM
but then bring up your NIC with "ifup", which is in accord with what
I've posted. So it's not NM that's bringing up your NIC if you have
"managed=false" in "/etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf".
