This reminds me of an old problem: Does the network dependency result in
initialization of the IPv6 stack?
(IPv6 networking is NOT started at boot on etch, but the module is
loaded automatically, which gets the worst of both worlds: IPv6-induced
delays and no full IPv6 support out of the box. I wish we could avoid
thos problem for lenny.)
