I spent a couple of hours trying to figure out why when I moved my firewall router box (2 nics) it would work.. then not work..etc.. Same problem.  It seems like it would be nice if udev at least had an option to save the current 'configuration' and 'restore' it when firing up.  At least then you'd only have to deal with the problem once.

It did however encourage me to also give my NIC's nice names rather than the default eth0 and eth1...
