/usr/lib/network/connections/bond is not working properly (at least for me).

In /etc/network.d/bonding:

DESCRIPTION='Bond Interface'
SLAVE_INTERFACES=('eth0' 'eth1')

As far as I understand, the interface is started too early (with "$CONN_DIR/ethernet" up). It should be done with "bring_interface up" and the interface started at the end. I tested it, and it's working like that.

I attached a modified version for a bond connection.

Don't hesitate if you have questions. If you confirm it, could it be integrated into Netcfg ?
