Logging would definitely help. Apparently it's not just a timing/race
issue, it's also unstable. Dan Nurmi will try to reproduce and help
debug. Our best lead so far is using the same external address as the
walrus component uses (since it's the only one to register properly).

We discussed it during the team meeting. Dustin will follow up for the
US shift, Mathias will assist in reproduction/debugging.

I suggested that if we can't fix it reliably by the end of the day, it
should be a known bug for beta. The idea is to get an ISO toasted with
at least the /var/run/eucalyptus/net fix by the end of the day, an ISO
which I'll test first thing tomorrow morning.
