[gnome-network] Bug#355260: gnome-nettool: Doesnt work with renamed interfaces

Package: gnome-nettool
Version: 1.4.1-1
Severity: normal


I use nameif to rename my interfaces and get consistant names between sessions.

This is done this way in /etc/network/interfaces:

auto lan
iface lan inet static
    pre-up nameif lan 00:11:2F:C6:5A:38
    up route add default gw

Then the "lan" interface is seen by the system the normal way:			    
lan       Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:11:2F:C6:5A:38
          inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:

If I start gnome-nettool, this interface appears in the lsit in the "Devices"

Network device:  Unknown interface (lan)

If I click [Configure], I get, after a while, a popup with:
The interface does not exist
Check that is is correctly typed and that
it is correcly supported by your system.
