   Trying to figure out if I did something to cause this.

   I have a machine that has been continuously updated from at least F16 
till F19 via preupgrade and now fedup. I also purchased a new SSD for it 
so installed F19 via the Beta DVD. I noticed one issue, on the upgraded 
system NM doesn't resume the wired network, but the fresh install does.

   I filed bug https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=970170 trying 
to find what the issue was. dcbw and I tried to figure out what was 
going on. I ended up finding a file in 
/etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/Auto Ethernet with the setting 
autoconnect=false. I don't recall creating the file, though its entirely 
possible. However stat on the file returns:

   File: ‘/etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/Auto Ethernet’
   Size: 210       	Blocks: 8          IO Block: 4096   regular file

I don't 100% know what to make of that, particularly why there is no 
birth date, however I did upgrade on the 30th.

   So does fedup or anything in that chain create connection files? I 
would imagine no since no one else is experiencing this issue but wanted 
to make sure.
