This bug was fixed in the package ifupdown - 0.7.5ubuntu2

---------------
ifupdown (0.7.5ubuntu2) raring; urgency=low

  * Update network-interface-security job to stop when the parent job is
    stopped itself. This avoids leftover instances. (LP: #1065684)
  * Set mtu of tunnel devices. (LP: #1074048)
  * Actually set the new calculated value for duplicate entries. (LP: #1086517)

Sounds like people want this fixed in 12.04 (and by extension 12.10).
