    Hi Ben,

    the situation is like this (exactly this works flawlessly with tulip):

    - unplug all interfaces from the switches
    - reboot box
    - plug in _one_ interface
    - log into the box (yes, network works flawlessly)
    - start keepalived
    - now plug in rest of the interfaces
    - watch keepalived do _nothing_ (seems no UP event shows up)

    in comparison to:

    - let all interfaces plugged in
    - reboot box
    - log in
    - start keepalived
    - watch it work as expected
