Problem still exists in Ubuntu 10.04 server. Removing package wireless-tools did not help. Neither did removing "auto eth0:0".

After doing this, eth0:0 does NOT show up in ifconfig. However, trying ifup again results in:

root@dinkydogg:~# ifup eth0:0
ifup: interface eth0:0 already configured

Doing ifdown results in:

root@dinkydogg:~# ifdown eth0:0
SIOCSIFFLAGS: Cannot assign requested address

But then I'm able to bring it back up with ifup.

What the heck... Any ideas?
