I don't know anything about that, but the only sleep command in
/lib/udev/net.agent is the following:

  wait_for_interface() {
      local interface=$1
      while :; do
          local state="$(cat /sys/class/net/$interface/operstate 2>/dev/null || true)"
          if [ "$state" != down ]; then
                  return 0
          sleep 1

Possibly you have a network interface that is toggling between up and
down.  Try looking at the /sys/class/net/*/operstate files and see if
any of them are changing.
