zabbix-agent fails to start on boot

Bug Description

zabbix-agent 1:2.2.2+dfsg-1 uses upstart to manage the service. By default the start clause reads

start on (filesystem and net-device-up IFACE=lo)

this can result in the following message in /var/log/upstart/zabix-agent.log

chown: invalid user: 'zabbix:zabbix'

The filesystem and networks have been brought up before the system is ready to accept non root accounts. This only happens on my new hex core (with hyperthreading) machines. Changing the start clause to

start on runlevel [2345]

solves the problem.

affects: compiz (Ubuntu) → zabbix (Ubuntu)
