You can install a virtual machine with squeeze and try editing the files
mentioned in the bug. If that works for your setup, you can then install
it on "real irons".

Just for the record, editing "/etc/NetworkManager/nm-system-settings.conf"
file (as per bug suggestion), adding "managed=true" and resarting the
system seems to "resurrect" eth0 cable connection and becomes available
into NM again.

This was tested on VM, though. Testing over real hardware should be a
better trial...

I've used the "managed=true" for about a year on my laptop, and the
couple of others I manage. The only problem with Network Manager I've
had during that time was a bug¹ in a new version which was fixed within
a week.
