Turned out simple!
When I started Ubuntu again to try to glean some more information eth0
was back up and running. Still not sure what's happening here.
I'm using a nVidia chipset so the forcedeth driver, I think it's more
likely to be NetworkManager... but that's only a hunch.

problem if you where using the e1000e driver. AFAIK the e1000e driver was 
disabled in the beta release, but it should now be possible to use it 
safely with the latest kernel.

Good luck!
