I did a local F13 install from the DVD (not enabling any external repos), then
used NetworkManager to set eth0 to connect automatically (right-clicking on the
NetworkManager applet, Edit Connections..., etc.)  At this point, I still had no
/etc/modprobe.conf file.  It was only after using s-c-n to change my network
settings that the file appeared.  The bug seems 100% reproducible by any type of
network editing with s-c-n.

If you install again, see if you can match up the time on the file with
something in /var/log/yum.log, or if it happens after all packages are installed.
