convert a server to a desktop... what happened?

I decided I wanted a user interface on my Ubuntu 9.10 server, so I
naively tried the following:
$ sudo tasksel install ubuntu-desktop
and, because I don't like middle-of-the-night-after-a-power-failure
surprises, I rebooted the machine once that completed.
Much to my surprise, the machine now has a new IP address, despite the
fact that /etc/network/interfaces says:
# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).
# The loopback network interface
iface lo inet loopback
# The primary network interface
iface eth0 inet static
Does anybody have any idea what just happened here?
