This is probably being caused by Network Manager, which is started from 
the HAL scripts.. (sorry, I forget exactly what directory these are in, 
but should be something that looks like /etc/hal, look for something 
that looks like a an init script link, S##networkmanager, or you can 
simply uninstall the network manager from your packages)
