eth1 not auto starting

My primary network interface is actually known as eth1. I have it
configured in /etc/network/interfaces.

iface eth1 inet dhcp
auto eth1

At boot up, it isn't brought up. I have to type ifup manually. I suspect
the hotplug system is supposed to invoke this properly when it detects
eth1. It's not.
