I have just had a quick look through your Debian report. I don't think it is
closed, just downgraded to wishlist. I don't see any mention of Devuan or that
being the reason for his response

I think this comment might relate to the fact that it is unsupported to comment
out the default ipv6 localhost entries in /etc/hosts.

If you reinstate them, does the pause on startup disappear?

I am not sure there is anything we can do in Devuan as this isn't a forked
package and we use Debian's packages directly without recompilation.
