Of course, that might be relevant were you upgrading. Other thoughts
are that it could be a DNS issue. We've recently changed some code in
that area which should fix issues like these (if indeed this is the
issue). You may wish to try building from source. Can your hostname be
resolved? Or, when it's trying to start, you could try strace-ing the
process to see what it's timing out on.
