I am quite sure it does not wait for network ifaces which need user
interaction to work, and it will not wait for network interfaces which
haven't shown up yet (which makes the whole thing racy, which is another
reason why this is borked), and it will time out after 45s or so. I am
sure dcbw knows all the details.
