Are you saying that the lines that you're commenting out were dead code
before your change, because GATEWAY and GATEWAYDEV were never(?) set by
that point?

Have you tested your patched scripts on a system that does _not_ use
VLANs - that is, on a system with just a very basic networking config
(such as what "settle" produces)?
