ifcfg-* files vanishing

I'm not sure how to go about debugging this problem.

If I set up a /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-wlan0 file for my 
wireless network NIC and ifup wlan0 then everything works.  If I reboot 
and the wireless NIC is not present then during the boot process 
something moves the ifcfg-wlan0 file to ifcfg-wlan0.bak. This is 
obviously not great since then when the NIC becomes available again all 
the config for it has vanished so I can't ifup it until I've put the 
ifcfg-wlan0 file back.

However, I have absolutely no idea what might be removing the 
configuration on boot.  My only guess is that it might be Kudzu, but that 
really is a bit of a blind guess.
