It gets odder--I tried this morning and observed:
* cold boot - address (DHCP generated)
* after network restart - address (same as above)
* after another network restart - address (supposed to be the static address, see attached ifcfg-eth0-local file)

I should mention that I did a groupinstall of "X Window System" and then installed mc, firefox and fluxbox, might that have pulled in some package that is affecting networking?
