Debian usually uses

ifup eth1
ifdown eth1


Have you tried using those commands instead of ifconfig ? it may trigger different script that would work properly.. I've never had the issue you are describing, maybe this is why ? Worth a shot anyway.

Some script isn't working as expected if 'ifup' doesn't set up the gateway properly, but as I said I'm not familiar with those new networking scripts. In a worst case situation, you can always put in a "post-up" line in the interfaces file to run a program which checks the routing table and adds the gateway if necessary, but the system scripts should have handled that. If you can find a bug I'm sure a lot of people would want to know about it.

That was sorta my point.. he's not using ifup eth1... he's using ifconfig eth1 up
maybe the two are slightly different..
