Just ifup/ifdown (which are now in /sbin) and network-services/* which 
is now in /lib/{network-}services - maybe I'm missing something?

Well, that's actually a feature and not a bug. If your connection gets 
interrupted temporarily by forces outside your control, you want the 
session to be restored without interrupt.

Yeah, I should have pasted the two comments that Fedora has in their 
scripts, too:

         # if we are in halt or reboot runlevel kill all running sessions
         # so the TCP connections are closed cleanly
