I stand corrected and suspect no more! Reverting that patch didn't solve
the fundamental issue.
It did seem to make the timeout happen quicker (in a wholly unscientific
test), but the problem was definitely still there.
So I suspect that this problem could manifest itself in Fedora too
(although the differences in what contributes towards network.target may
mean it does not).
