Package: aiccu
Version: 20070115-9
Severity: normal

It seems that aiccu does not background itself until after it's gotten a
connection, or given up. Normally, this does not cause a long delay. My
laptop is offline right now, and when I try to start aiccu, it takes it
only 20 seconds to fail to start.

I think that sixxs is down (can't get to their website etc). This may
explain why aiccu was today hanging for a very long time when started
(observed on multiple systems) including on boot. A user reported a hang
of > 15 minutes, though it looks like after an hour plus, it finally
gave up and let the boot continue.

For systems where nothing in the boot process depends on a functional
ipv6 network, I'd really like to be able to configure aiccu to start
entirely in the background, avoiding any unpredictabe delays of this
