I upgraded to testing and noticed that the PRE_DOWN and POST_UP scripts in my netcfg profile were not executed anymore when suspending/resuming the machine.

I also found the problem:
The script /usr/lib/pm-utils/sleep.d/11netcfg calls /usr/bin/netcfg2 which does not exist anymore. I worked around this by symlinking /usr/bin/netcfg2 to /usr/bin/netcfg.

I also noticed that 11netcfg is part of pm-utils. Wouldn't it make more sense to make this part of the netcfg package? As far as I can see this file is useless for people who don't have netcfg installed.

btw I'm using systemd and don't have initscripts installed.
This task depends upon
