Hotplug not properly starting network for xircom_cb pcmcia network

Description of problem:
When I insert the xircom_cm pcmcia card, the module seems to be
properly loaded by the pcmcia services, but hotplug seems to
fail to notice this, and fails to start the network.
If I type "ifup eth0", network starts right up.
Here is the end of my messages file:

The module is properly loaded, and works fine. Seems
to be a problem with the hotplug recognition of the loaded
module. I tried to track it down, but had no luck.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Uplug the Xircom card
2. Replug the Xircom card. Card is recognized properly every time
but ifup command doesn't get done.
Expected Results: The network should be up after I plug in the card, without
needing to type ifup eth0.
Likely related problem with a linksys 10/100 NE2000 clone.
Log shows hotplug/net.agent trying the "ifup eth0",
but nothing results from that. In my case, nothing like the
above messages from pci.agent. Just nothing at all after
the ".../net/agent: invoke ifup eth0".
All works fine if I manually do "ifup eth0", which is what
makes me think it is related.
