While I don't use BOINC, I've had had similar issues with other
programs, and moving network manager's start up position has helped with
some, but not with others.  Moving those other things start up position
further back has helped with a few more, but not all.

I have two concerns with doing that sort of thing:  I shouldn't have to
do so much mangling to get things to work that are expected to work in
their current configuration.  And I might have to keep on fiddling
around if updates undo my mangling.

I've had to do something similar.

It strikes me that something is *really* broken with Network Manager.
Other services wait until they start before returning to the next item
in the startup sequence.  Network Manager seems to be returning as
ready, before it is, and buggering up other things that follow.
