Yes, I forgot to add mode="append" in the second <textdump>.
It's fixed now, thanks.

In ethnet script, route is added even if "ifconfig" hasn't been run (when
ONBOOT is not set to "yes").

Maybe a simple:

    if [ "$ONBOOT" != yes ]
        # A bit echoing here?

would be better? A bit off-topic here (and perhaps even already considered
for scripts rewriting), but anyway...
