Description Clark Williams 2001-07-21 00:47:11 EDT
Description of Problem:
Invalid syslog entry generated by file /etc/hotplug/net.agent:
"/etc/hotplug/net.agent:  register event not handled"

This occurs, even though the register event is actually handled. It is
caused by backgrounding the call to /sbin/ifup:

"exec /sbin/ifup $INTERFACE &"

remove the ampersand and the the file works

How Reproducible:
every time a wireless network pcmcia card is  started

Steps to Reproduce:
1. insert wireless pcmcia card 
2. /sbin/service pcmcia restart

Actual Results:
syslog will contain an entry stating that a register event wasn't handled

Expected Results:
no syslog entry
