Summary: Sysconfig Prevents Network Connections on Boot

When I was using openSUSE 10.3 recently (I just updated to 11.0) I noticed
downloading the patch from the official openSUSE repo for the sysconfig package
causes my wireless PCI card to refuse to connect to the router during a boot.
I'm using Kinternet with ifup, not NetworkManager. It would seem the bug has
migrated to openSUSE 11.0. Before 11.0 was released I contacted the people at
Novell responsible for sysconfig and they told me to wait until 11.0 comes out
before submitting a bug report. Well, 11.0 is out and the bug hasn't gone

Here are the symptoms. When using the default sysconfig package from DVD, my
wifi adapter connects to the router and gets assigned a IP at boot, enough time
for the NTP client to sync my clock. Then I updated the package from the suse
update repo and when ever I reboot (using the Esc key to see the progress of
the boot) I see that the network says it failed.

I log on KDE and see a lighting bolt on Kinternet like it's trying to connect.
If I click it once it cancels the connection attempt. If I click it again I'm
able to connect. All I know is the problem is related to any sysconfig
versions greater then the one provided from the 10.3 DVD and prevents any
network connections during a boot.
