    I had this happen once where the mac-address was not the same as the one belonging to the network card, I doubt it will be the same problem here, but was the first thing I thought about.

    Another thing I've read somewhere is to aff NM_CONTROLLED to the ifcfg-eth0/1 file, even if it really isn't needed, it seemed to help for some.
