You (your init script/lines and hacks you add to your init scripts)
have to make sure that the _address_ is available before you tell
drbd to use that address.

If the address is not available, "network start"
(or whatever it is called) should not have returned yet,
and if it does, I'd argue it is broken.
Could this be "upstart" related?

Imaginge an Apache directive Listen
which will also fail if no is available at that point.
