after a lot of head scratching I found that the ifup-eth script in the 
initscripts package seems to be corrupt.
I filed a bug with the details here:

Given the nature of the corruption you might be not affected at all, see 
strange error messages or end up with networking problems on Centos 5.7 
depending on what you configuration looks like.

I just thought I'd mention it here in case someone is in the same position 
as me and sees weird things happening when dealing with network 
configuration. I almost questioned my sanity before I went and dug into the 
networking scripts and found the problem.
