ok then I said it before upstart is a complete mystery to me.

so when autofs is started start-ypbind is actually blocking autofs ??
and only when start-ypbind is started is autofs actually started??

if you say so but I do not understand the configuration that makes this

if I look into start-ypbind it gets started and then only waits for
ypbind to start. That is all. why is autofs not started while this wait
is happening ?

autofs now have no condition other than runlevel so I do not see why it
would wait on ypbind.
