I reported it as a bug.  Just got the following reply:

"Boinc is probably starting so soon after NetworkManager that the
network is not up yet.  It's technically a bug in Boinc that it doesn't
wait for a network connection and periodically re-try to send/grab the
data.  But for the moment, you can add the line:


to /etc/sysconfig/network and startup will block for 10 seconds or until
a network connection is up, whichever is sooner."

I added the suggested line, because it probably covers all instances of
shutdowns, crashes etc.  whereas the rc.local solution only works with a
normal clean startup.

Thanks all.
