I think the problem is because the people that set the order figured
that the network service would be used more for servers, and use a
wired connection. (I believe it only runs on run level 3 now.) For
desktop use, on run level 5, network manager is supposed to run
instead. In practice, it did not work out that way. You will have to
check, but I think there is a bug filed about this.
I would call this a bug. This is one of the things that tends to
show up in real use - people using the system in ways the
programmers didn't think they would.
Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons,
for thou art crunchy and taste good with Ketchup!
