[OM2008-12] Default route under wifi always has the USB default route as well...

I followed the instructions on the wiki for setting up the
"interfaces" file under "/etc/network". On the wiki page they have the
following for the wireless interface:

# Wired or wireless interfaces
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp
        wpa-conf /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
        up route del default gw
        up route del default gw

On the wiki page they mentioned to put the route delete line twice
since the first one did not seem to ever work. Well, putting it twice
never works either. Has anyone been able to successfully remove the
USB interface as the default route? I can do it once I've ssh'd to the
device with a simple command but I'm trying to automate this device as
much as possible since it's going to be used in demonstrations by
people who have no clue.
