I could confirm this.
It doesn't work with "auto usb0" with "allow-hotplug usb0" it works just
Every time I plug the Freerunner in my debian etch it brings the
interface up.
I use the version from the wiki with a extra freerunner script.

My entry in /etc/network/interfaces:

allow-hotplug usb0
iface usb0 inet static
post-up /etc/network/freerunner start
pre-down /etc/network/freerunner stop

Someone should correct the wiki, should I?
