ifcfg-eth0 ONBOOT=no incorrectly autoconnects

[root@caprica ~]# cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0

I deleted "Auto Ethernet" from gconf.
Bug: Plugging in Ethernet cable still automatically connects despite ONBOOT=no.
This is a bug according to dcbw.
Dan figured out that this happens because inotify is watching the file in
/etc/sysconfig/networking/profiles instead of network-scripts/, meaning inotify
only triggers a re-parse of the ifcfg file if system-config-network made the
change which then hardlinks the file from the profile into network-scripts/. He
is considering having NM look directly at network-scripts but there were other
issues having to do with search domain and hostname that need to be figured first.
Dan this should be fixed now right?
Yeah, should be fixed in latest koji F9 NM to read from
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/, not from /.../profiles/default, which was the
