This seems to have been fixed in F11.  My laptops no longer sit around
off-net after a reboot until I get around to logging in on the console.
The option for bringing up a network at boot time is called "share
network connection" or something to that effect.  Why it isn't something
more obvious such as "bring this nework up at boot time", I have no

(I agree w. all the rest, BTW.  There are too many out of control
developers trying to leave their mark on Linux in the same way that a
dog tries to leave its mark on a fire hydrant.)
