These problems happens only when using netcfg-2.5.0rc1-1 in testing:

1) When starting the net-profiles daemon, I get a:
find: `/var/run/network//suspend/': No such file or directory

The daemon script should create that directory if it doesn't exist.

2) Only the first profile in NETWORKS is started. In my rc.conf, I have:
NETWORKS=(Ethernet-modem Ethernet-laptop !Wireless)

but only the Ethernet-modem profile is started. My Ethernet-laptop profile is being ignored.

$ cat /etc/network.d/Ethernet-modem
DESCRIPTION="Ethernet profile for internet access (modem)"

$ cat /etc/network.d/Ethernet-laptop
DESCRIPTION="Ethernet profile for laptop access"
IFOPTS=" netmask broadcast"

Let me know if you need more info.

I tried to reproduce your second problem but every time, both profiles were starting..

Are you able to start both profiles after start up?

I tried with 2.5.0rc2-1 and same problem. It doesn't start after start up either.

The problem seem to be caused by the 'exit 0' in the case statement while looping over the content of the NETWORKS array. When I comment it out, both profiles are started even though I get a "> No profile started." message. I also doen't understand the:
echo "$network" > "$STATE_DIR/net-profiles"
line. It should use >> instaed of > not to clobber the file. Unless I'm mistaken, it looks like if it only support one profile.
