And please give hints how to find out about this names, e.g. calling:

"/sbin/ifconfig" (first line is most likely: ^e... *Link encap:Ethernet)

All these commands work as 'normal' non-privileged user.

That would at least give some help, and makes the life for support easier.

Good suggestions.

If people use NetworkManager, the new names are a problem in only one case that I know about. If the wireless driver fails to register as a wireless device, the new naming system knows they are network devices, concludes that they are ethernet types, and gives them a name of en.... rather than wl... When this happens, NM will not connect to the device.
