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
Device: 900h/2304d Inode: 9175051 Links: 1

Change: 2013-05-30 11:53:11.975606395 -0600
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.
