During boot of my laptop network configuration hangs
for minutes. I traced it to hotplug trying to bring up
the wireless connection.

My /etc/network/interfaces has the entry

auto lo eth1
...
mapping hotplug
script grep
map eth0

It seem wrong for hotplug to try and bring the "non
auto" eth0 during boot - in contradiction to the 'auto'
directive.

I am not sure if this is hotplug fault or not - but
perhaps someone can shed some light on the issue.
