I'm pretty sure it's a difference of the machines installation. Just
as an example, I had once a problem installing services which depend
on a prior started Oracle (some 7.x version) service. So I added
dependencies to the Oracle service to my services but that never worked.
The Oracle service didn't startup anymore and the SCM database stayed
locked! I had to change my code to loop until Oracle is available,
instead :-P

However, I have that automatic startup on two machines and both
startup as usual and always. But both are developer machines
which don't have any strange stuff installed (uh, except the OS
of course).
