It works, if i put "sleep 5" after "modprobe r8169"

So i think this is what happens:
- nm is put to sleep
- module is removed
- interface vanishes from hal
- module is reloaded
- hal starts detecting the new interface etc.
- in the mean time, nm is woken
- hal is still detecting the interface and stuff. I mean - the HAL code
is known to be horrible wrt. performance and stuff
- nm sees "no interface"
- hal finally finishes detecting the interface
- somehow, nm does not notice that there has turned up a new interface
- nm never gets to know that there is a new interface.

So i do not know who is to blame, but it surely does not work correctly.
And no, i will not put "sleep 5" into the pm-utils scripts.
