I have just found out that Network Manager has a dependency on bind (don't ask me why...).

I was testing some system administration tools, found bind, and decided to remove it. Suddenly not only Network Manager stopped working, but so was my ethernet connection. Some digging revealed that the interface was deactivated.

So it appears that when Network Manager goes down, it brings down your network interface (that's in use?) as well.

The strange thing is bind doesn't need to be running, only installed on the system.
