I applied yast2-network-2.9.43-0.2.i586.rpm and it had no effect. On the
boot none of the additional interfaces comes up. But if I run
network restart *after* I log back in from the reboot, then all the
additional IP addresses come up.

However now that I've applied the patch, I get this message in the
boot.msg log:

Setting up network interfaces:

Based on that message, you would *think* the additional IP addresses
came up on the boot. They did not. I had to run "network restart" in
order to bring them up. I've now lost two weeks on this problem.
