Webmin seems to fail on the "auto" stanzas in
/etc/network/interfaces

When an interface should be automagicly started on
bootup a line like "auto eth0" should be added. Instead
(scanning the sourcecode in debian-linux-lib.pl) a
noauto phrase is added to an interface instead when it
should not be automatically started and nothing is
done for automatic interfaces.

Also, when the auto stanza is present, the webmin
parser fails to parse the configfile correctly and
writes out config files where the static parameters
are missing.

This is tested on Debian Unstable (Sid), but should be
the same for Woody (the next Debian release).
