OK, after thrashing about for awhile I tried something "obvious":
root@PuteB Wed Aug 20 16:10:25
 /home/magnusg $ /etc/init.d/avahi-daemon restart
Shutting down Avahi daemon: [ OK ]
Starting Avahi daemon... [ OK ]
which seems to work. But what's going on? Is the system starting
services in the wrong order? Do the other boxes on the network have to
be operational first for avahi-daemon to come up during booting?
