well, IMHO you are looking at
which is caused by a changed ifupdown. This new version is expecting the
interface status file at /dev/shm/network/ifstate, so the directory has to be
both existant and writable.

the patch I attached to the bug solves the problem for me: it bind-mounts
/tmp to /dev/shm/ and creates /dev/shm/network/ in create_ramdisk, so
ifupdown actually works.
