Recap: Networking problems with LDAP?



I just want to re-mention this problem, because I saw it again yesterday and I 
think it's rather important to look into...

Fedora 7 doesn't use network anymore; instead, it uses NetworkManager to 
create network connections at startup.  That's fine, except for one thing; 
NetworkManager needs DBus to be running to start, and DBus won't start unless 
the system can get all the logins at that point.  There's no problem if all 
logins are local, but if they aren't (using LDAP or ActiveDirectory or 
something like that), then the DBus startup script hangs, then crashes out, 
which is no good. 

I tried moving NetworkManager up, but as I mentioned before, it requires DBus 
to already be running.  That means that the system has to run the network 
init script if the system is using network logins, just so DBus can get the 
list of logins at startup.  The problem completely disappeared when I 
reactivated the normal network init script.
