[DAPPER] Slow boot "Configuring network interfaces..."

Hi all.

Does anyone else have a problem with Dapper and slow booting? It always
hangs for minute or two at the "Configuring network interfaces..." -part
of the boot.

Now, you're probably starting to write "It's 'cause you don't get DHCP
lease sooner..." No, I have configured my card to use static IP and
that's why I'm not sure what the script is waiting for. After boot
running /etc/init.d/networking restart is always quick...

My /etc/network/interfaces looks like this:


# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The primary network interface
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
        address 192.168.x.2
        network 192.168.x.0
        broadcast 192.168.x.255
        gateway 192.168.x.254


I'd appreciate any help about this issue.
