network.service fails on boot

Hey,

I noted that booting takes really long since the fedora 17 update (I did it when fedora 8 became a pre-release). Also, the wifi service crashed. It did not really bother me, I'm cable-based almost ever, but today I took some time to look into the issue. Unfortunately, I do not see the reason, maybe you do:

boot.log shows a problem about starting my wifi. So I checked systemctl status:

$> systemctl status network.service network.service - LSB: Bring up/down networking Loaded: loaded (/etc/rc.d/init.d/network) Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Mon, 15 Oct 2012 23:25:38 +0200; 22s ago Process: 2045 ExecStart=/etc/rc.d/init.d/network start (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE) CGroup: name=systemd:/system/network.service

Warning: Journal has been rotated since unit was started. Log output is incomplete or unavailable.

I tried to start it manually using systemctl start network.service. My computer tried to connect to my wifi several times, reporting a connection failure several times. Then it again told me it could not start the service (if this is done during boot, it explains why boot is slow).

After that, I had a look at the wpa_supplicant log:

wlan0: SME: Trying to authenticate with mac-address (SSID='my-wifi-ssid' freq=2467 MHz) wlan0: Trying to associate with mac-address (SSID='my-wifi-ssid' freq=2467 MHz) wlan0: Associated with mac-address wlan0: WPA: Key negotiation completed with mac-address [PTK=CCMP GTK=TKIP] wlan0: CTRL-EVENT-CONNECTED - Connection to mac-address completed (reauth) [id=0 id_str=] wlan0: WPA: Group rekeying completed with mac-address [GTK=TKIP] wlan0: WPA: Group rekeying completed with mac-address [GTK=TKIP] wlan0: WPA: Group rekeying completed with mac-address [GTK=TKIP] wlan0: WPA: Group rekeying completed with mac-address [GTK=TKIP] wlan0: WPA: Group rekeying completed with mac-address [GTK=TKIP] wlan0: WPA: Group rekeying completed with mac-address [GTK=TKIP] wlan0: WPA: Group rekeying completed with mac-address [GTK=TKIP] wlan0: WPA: Group rekeying completed with mac-address [GTK=TKIP] wlan0: WPA: Group rekeying completed with mac-address [GTK=TKIP] wlan0: WPA: Group rekeying completed with mac-address [GTK=TKIP] wlan0: WPA: Group rekeying completed with mac-address [GTK=TKIP] wlan0: WPA: Group rekeying completed with mac-address [GTK=TKIP] wlan0: WPA: Group rekeying completed with mac-address [GTK=TKIP] wlan0: Failed to initiate AP scan wlan0: Failed to initiate AP scan wlan0: Failed to initiate AP scan

after that there are three repetitions of this:
