My connection comes up at boot and that's all I care about. The fact
that it's not available to Network Manager doesn't worry me.

Maybe it should, though.... :-)

I wonder if this is why there are some many problems with Evolution 2.30
breaking. From those threads, it seems that Evolution is looking to
Network Manager and, if the interface isn't managed, Evolution assumes
there is no network. At least, that's what I took as the gist of those
threads - John

I don't use Evo, but from what you say, it seems highly likely that
Network Manager's bug is the problem.

I use Evolution and yes, Evolutio relies on NM to determine if a
connection is up or not....

If NM says there is no connection, then Evo will go into Offline mode;
sometimes I need to tell it to "Work Online" in order to have it work.

Is this bug? This seems to me user configuration issue. I am basically
follwing: README.Debian NEWS.Debian.gz of network-manager Just disable
eth0 in /etc/network/interfaces like:

----
# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The primary network interface
#allow-hotplug eth0
#iface eth0 inet dhcp
-----

Then NM will detect eth0

Not for me. But having the NM applet started by default and seeing no
ethernet device there (but working) is a bit confusing for users who want
to use NM.

Yes, and that's quite similar to the information that the bug report
(comment #1) refers to.

agree !

if NM is a feature in Debian (and affects other SW components) then it
should be operating properly on a fresh install...

... or fully disabled !

but, no... I would also not call it a bug... just an issue
