I noticed your name in the new 6.1 ifup-aliases script. I
had problems bring up virtual interfaces and with a little
bugging noticed that the following line seemed to be
DEVICE="`echo $FILE | sed -e 's/ifcfg\-//'`"
I placed this line in the function new_interface(). Just
below the assignment line that starts with IPGLOP and above
line that starts wtih DEVNUM. Around line 133 in the file.

to be made, but it seems to work correctly.
I added the line because at line 156 with the compare of
if [ -z "$DEVICE" -o -z "$IPADDR" ]; then
echo "error in $FILE: didn't specify device or
ipaddr" >&2 ; exit 0
$DEVICE is empty and causes script to fail.
