Actually, that is mysterious too, I've got it defined to
be a static IP (this is the system which runs dhcp for my
other computers to use, but is static itself :-).

I have bind setup to be a DNS cache and server for my local
network, I wonder if there is something going on there
(I should make sure bind starts before ntp :-).

That's on me: I have an actual sleep command in my rc.local
after I modprobe my lirc usb IR device since I noticed
the /dev/lirc didn't appear right away, but took a few
seconds. I suppose I could background that whole thing -
I certainly don't need lirc working instantly after the boot.
