Removing network cards from system sees 'ghost' configurations

Screenshot of s-c-n showing two cards when only one is attached.
Description of problem:
When I install rawhide I had two network cards in my system (I was having troubles with f10 and the network interface on the motherboard, so I added a second card).
I don't need the second card, but after removing it from the case and restarting rawhide it still 'kind of' shows up and it seems impossible to remove it from s-c-n.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
In s-c-n I still have two devices. eth0 and eth1. eth0's card has been removed.
In the hardware tab, I see two physically attached network cards, except there's only one in the machine now. (I'll attach a screenshot). The first card (which isn't actually there) has no description and is a pan0 type device (whatever that is).
Deleting this piece of hardware and then rebooting sees the hardware in s-c-n next time you reboot and the subsequent reappearance of the device (having been deleted with the device)
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
