I think that might be working as expected. The service is probably not
considered as running until all ExecStart* directives are complete.

Can you please file a bug against chrony to add an option to the
chrony-helper script which would shortcut the service check?

Comment 1 Miroslav Lichvar 2011-09-06 15:28:42 UTC
The chrony-helper scripts now has "forced-command" command which doesn't check if the service is running.
