Interesting discovery:

I reinstalled and told the installer to make a swap partition. As expected the bug did not occur when I booted.

Next I deleted the swap partition with fdisk and rebooted. This caused systemd to wait for 1 minute 30 seconds during boot. The bug did not happen.

Next I removed the swap partition definition from /etc/fstab and rebooted. systemd did not wait during boot, and the bug happened.

Therefore this looks like a race condition.
