Then in that case I'm not sure what's going on.  I don't see any
relevant changes in the 3.1.2-3.1.3 network scripts.  To diagnose, you
should verify that the network script isn't putting any errors in the
system log.  You can also run the script by hand ("/etc/pcmcia/network
start eth0", or "sh -x /etc/pcmcia/network start eth0") to see exactly
what it is doing.

You should be able to use insert and eject, and no, they don't do the
same thing as suspend and resume.  It might be that there are some
weird timing issues at resume time; most of my cards work correctly
across suspend/resume so I haven't experimented with setups like this.
