Perhaps, just perhaps you should be doing "ifdown $dev" *before*
editing your e/n/i: ifdown may get confused finding parameters
there corresponding to the future, not to the current connections.

I use ifupdown myself and have hit few problems so far by doing
changes after doing the ifdown (and before the ifup, of course :)
