For monitoring interfaces I use the manual method and put the commands 
in the network config ala /etc/network/interfaces. (this is probably 
debian specific)

auto bond0
iface bond0 inet manual
         pre-up ifconfig eth1 up && ifconfig eth2 up && ifconfig bond0 up
         up ifenslave bond0 eth1 eth2
         down ifenslave -d bond0 eth1 eth2
         post-down ifconfig eth1 down && ifconfig eth2 down && ifconfig 
bond0 down

auto eth3
iface eth3 inet manual
         up ifconfig eth3 up
         down ifconfig eth3 down
