It does. I wrote that in the original posting and this was making
things more puzzling. Yesterday I applied over 1 Gig of updates to
a rawhide installation using static settings.
Still I think that I figured it out. It appears that a powered
switch on my network decided to misbehave. After resetting it I
started to see wired interfaces dynamically configured again. A
mystery remains how my printer got its IP number. It is hanging
from the same switch. Really weird ...
An implicit information that I am the only one with such issue was
of help. Thanks!
