The idea was to come up with a generic solution rather than escalating 
it upstream to ntp. Sendmail has similar problems.  Postfix doesn't 
start unless listed interfaces are active.  All of these require a 
re-look at the relationships and dependancies of the scripts found 
in /etc/init.d/  NetworkManager or a similar tool would be beneficial 
to "guide" this portion of the bootup process.
