Precisely. Launchd doesn't care. That's not its job. This is why I
suggested a wrapper around the condor_master startup. It's simple, easy
to maintain, easy to deploy, and is portable should it ever become
necessary. For example:


for t in {1..9}; do
  ping -c 1 -t `expr $t \* $t` >/dev/null 2>&1 && \
    exec /usr/local/bin/condor_master

A simple ping check, quiet, with an increasing backoff on tries until
either the specified IP returns a ping packet or the loop exits.
