Thanks very much for your help, that did solve the problem.
I think that this other one has probably nothing to do with the initscripts, 
but I still get the __tmp1804289383 device when I wake up the notebook from 
suspend to RAM. Do you know if there's a way to get the wireless NIC working 
without rebooting after suspending?
