I can't help with guessnet, but I wonder why you think ifplugd could be
involved. ifplugd starts from /etc/rc2.d (by default), while networking
starts from /etc/rcS.d/. The plugging daemon isn't even started when you
get this hang.
Isn't there anything in syslog? You really need to know what it's waiting
for. If there's any way to make guessnet verbose, it would help.
