[Bug 919068] Re: bridge_ports all doesn't work at boot time

An SRU has been uploaded to Ubuntu 11.10 fixing some timing issues at
boot time.

Can you make sure your system is fully up to date including bridge-utils
at version 1.5-2ubuntu1.1?

If the problem still happens after that, the following would probably be useful:
 - "ls -l /run/network/"
 - "initctl list"
 - /var/log/kernel.log
 - /var/log/syslog
 - ip link show
 - ip addr show
 - brctl show
