Bug Description

I'm using Ubuntu 13.04 dev with upstart 1.6.1-1ubuntu1. I'm using a static network configuration on eth0 and the problem is if the cable is unpluged and the system is booted my desktop will be delayed up to 120 seconds to start because of /etc/init/failsafe.conf.

I would asume because of "stop on static-network-up or starting rc-sysinit" the script isn't stoped because eth0 can't be started. But the network configuration is valid and the booting time shouldn't be delayed just because of an unpluged cable.

I agree, as I wrote on this bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/upstart/+bug/995407. This bug report seems more relevant however. In my case, it's not even my primary internet connection that hangs, but a connection to another computer that doesn't need to be switched on.

A workaround is to edit /etc/init/failsafe.conf and remove all the sleeps.
