Guessnet doesn't work without any debug output

Bug Description

I just did a fresh install of ubuntu 13.10 and copied a previously working configuration of /etc/interfaces from my old system (ubuntu 11.04) to my new system.

The config (/etc/interfaces) looks like this

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

#use guessnett
mapping eth0
        script /usr/sbin/guessnet-ifupdown
        map timeout: 3
        map default: none

iface home inet static

iface none inet dhcp

iface nocable inet manual
        test missing-cable

ifplugd is installed but if I plugin a LAN cable nothing happens.

Doing (everything as root) ifup eth0=home works as expected. If I try to execute guessnet manually by /usr/sbin/guessnet-ifupdown eth0 nothing happens, the program just runs without any output. Adding the --debug option just gives me

/usr/sbin/guessnet-ifupdown --debug eth0
guessnet: program name is guessnet-ifupdown: enabling ifupdown mode

Then it seems to sleep again.

Any idea how to fix this?
