udev ate my network

Using f18. Lot's of nice improvements.
I don't use NetworkManager. I use network.
All my network info is in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts.
Everything was working well until I replaced a motley crue of network
adapters with a quad port adapter.
udev hijacked everything. Can't make it go away. Can't figure out why
it decided to raise its ugly head.
the ifcfg-eth? scripts have correct HWADDR mac address and their DEVICE
and NAME values are correct.
udev suddenly wants to rename everything back and forth. Using advice
from this list I created 70-persistent-net rules which recreates the
original ifcfg setup and what I originally intended but now pauses for
30 seconds while it complains that udev is buggy and nothing will work
after it maybe gets fixed.
Worked well until I replaced the NICs. Anybody know how to turn this
Searched through the list history and found five related emails but none
that help here :)
