Karmic: stop: Unknown instance

the scripts in /etc/init.d are supposed to be obsolete in Karmic, but the upstart
system which is supposed to replace them only works with "start", and not
for any other command:

==> service networking restart
restart: Unknown instance:

==> service networking stop
stop: Unknown instance:

==> stop networking 
stop: Unknown instance:

==> /etc/init.d/networking stop
  * Deconfiguring network interfaces...
  * Deconfiguring network interfaces...

==> service networking start
networking stop/waiting

So, if /etc/init.d/networking is no more to be used, what am I supposed to
do when I need to restart the network?
