Re: boot: network configured before PCMCIA loaded

This is a DNS timeout.  If you have PCMCIA and networking set up to not
actually provide a network interface until PCMCIA is configured, exim
will start quickly.  If you have a network interface, but it is not
actually up, exim will start very slowly.
