How many systems do you have with two or more interfaces? The higher the number the more likely you are to see this.
While I won't say this scenario is frequent, it should be non existent. Most recently I've witnessed it when going from RHEL3 to RHEL4 on a system with five interfaces. Could this be RedHat's fault? Possibly, though based on other experiences I suspect this is more of a 2.4->2.6 issue.
