Network does not come up automatically

I have a verrry strange problem with my ubuntu...

Every reboot, eth0 won't come up.

/etc/network/interfaces has been configured correctly, with auto eth0, dhcp etc (in fact, basic file from ubuntu, no changes)
# Used by ifup(8) and ifdown(8). See the interfaces(5) manpage or
# /usr/share/doc/ifupdown/examples for more information.
auto lo eth0

mapping hotplug
script grep
map eth0

iface lo inet loopback
iface eth0 inet dhcp
Hotplug seems to be started successfully at boot, driver and nic are found (checked with dmesg)...

When i do an 'ip link set eth0 up', network comes up fine.

Someone an idea what i need to check?? thx a lot!

did you touch /etc/init.d/networking?
Anyway, as a work around, try adding that line at the end of this script.
