Race condition in /etc/rc.d/ with latest -current ?

With the latest current in combination with madwifi (0.9.2), my system is 50/50 unable to mount NFS disks in fstab upon boot. Manually mounting them later works fine though. The weird thing is that this happens pretty accurately every other time. Mounts NFS disk, fails to mount it, mounts it, fails to mount it.

It seems that the reason for this is that the ath0 wireless interface is not yet up and ready when the rc.inet script continues to NFS mounting.

Have anyone else experienced this?

Have you found that when it does mount, it takes a long time?
If so, add your client ip address to the /etc/hosts file on the nfs server. I had that issue (might mount, might not, takes awhile), then after adding the ip address, it was instant mount...
