I currently have a few ibex boxes over here that are set to static ip
via network manager, and it works after reboot just fine.  The only
time I have noticed needing to touch /etc/network/interfaces was to
set up some bridges for my vm's.  Also, I checked that box just now
(the one I did hand edit network interfaces on) and the network
manager app shows the correct interface information for eth0, br0, etc
that I entered into the interfaces file.
