I'd check to see if Suse has something like anacron (available in at
least Debian) which is especially for running "daily" things on systems
that aren't on 24/7. It starts those jobs (if necessary! booting 2 x on
one day means it runs only the 1st time) sometime after booting.

I'd expect that things run from /etc/init.d/boot.local will cause the
boot sequence to be delayed until those things are complete. Dirvish can
take some time (depending on used space etc.), so I don't think you want
to be waiting for 10 minutes before you can log in ...
