Well, I didn't exactly solve the problem, but I found a workaround which
at least gives me an automatic wireless connection when I log on.

First, I changed to using a static address in

iface eth1 inet static
wireless-mode managed
wireless-essid My-Essid

I still needed to run ifup eth1, ifdown eth1, ifup eth1, but now I can
put this in /etc/rc.local:

ifup eth1
sleep 4
ifdown eth1
ifup eth1

Not very elegant, but at least it works.
