According to the docs that should work and you need the following just 
to prevent NetworkManager et al. from trying to "manage" the individual 
bridge ports:

iface eth1 inet manual

Looking at my old config files, I had an ifconfig up in there as well:

auto tap0
iface tap0 inet manual
          up              ifconfig $IFACE up
          tunctl_user     uml-net

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet manual
          up              ifconfig $IFACE up
          up              ethtool -s $IFACE wol g

But that might either have never been necessary (but harmless) or at 
least not any more. If it _is_ required (i.e. it wasn't caused by 
NetworkManager interfering) you should file a bug so either the 
documentation gets fixed or the bridge script.
