have had this problem myself some times ago and you gave me the same answer.
I solved whe problem with a sleep 1 at the beginning od drbd init script 
which, as you know, are executed sequentially.
This implies that the network was up.

When using DRBD virtual machines, everything is so fast that DRBD fails 
to bind.
The problem seems to be related to IPv6 and autodiscovery which is done 
in background after setting up the interface and this may take some time.
This was not happening in previous releases of DRBD when it didn't 
support IPv6
