11.3.0 can have difficulties with wired ethernet adapter

Using os883 with q3b22.rom on an XO-1.5.  On first-time boot-up with a 
build, which interface gets assigned to the ethernet depends upon when 
the ethernet-USB adapter gets plugged in to the XO.  [If plugged in too 
soon, the wired ethernet gets assigned the 'eth0' interface -- which 
causes conflicts trying to use wireless.]

Further, with the ethernet-USB adapter plugged in, shutdown usually 
takes about a minute (while displaying the U/L warnings screen).  It 
appears that something regarding the ethernet is being timed out.

[Also, since this summer the Fedora 14 NetworkManager has gotten 
aggressive -- it periodically simply disconnects my ethernet connection 
(so that it can scan for wireless signals ??).  My bypass is to stop the 
NetworkManager before connecting the XO to the internet using the wired 
ethernet rather than connecting the XO through a wireless AP.]
