[Sugar-devel] Wanting to know a bit of (NetworkManager) workflow upon resume-from-suspend

Another comment from the unwashed:
Years back, I used only ethernet to connect my XOs. Nowadays, I'm using
both wired and wireless to connect between XOs. [By the way, I normally
run my XOs with suspend disabled - so I have not paid much attention to
problems associated with 'resume'.]
For about the last year, Network Manager has become "super bossy":
It used to be that if I had an XO on ethernet, Network Manager might
intervene after some 10+ hours - breaking that ethernet connection. I
did not mind occasionally having to "reconnect" the ethernet (I just
invoke a script that re-issues the necessary commands).
But the current Network Manager intervenes in less than ten SECONDS - it
breaks the connection on the ethernet (eth1) interface - presumably to
set up the wireless (eth0) interface (to listen for radio signals).
Bottom line - these days, in order to use ethernet on an XO, I need to
__disable__ Network Manager.
