Description of problem:
When I try to start up snmpd with "systemctl start snmpd.service", the command hangs for a while, and then says the job failed.

I see one AVC after the attempt:

time->Tue Sep 20 13:04:33 2011
type=SYSCALL msg=audit(1316516673.513:6358): arch=c000003e syscall=46 success=no exit=-13 a0=b a1=7fffe27a2c90 a2=4000 a3=7fffe27a2a10 items=0 ppid=1 pid=16675 auid=4294967295 uid=0 gid=0 euid=0 suid=0 fsuid=0 egid=0 sgid=0 fsgid=0 tty=(none) ses=4294967295 comm="snmpd" exe="/usr/sbin/snmpd" subj=system_u:system_r:snmpd_t:s0 key=(null)

The "notify" sock_file it tries to talk to apparently is /var/run/systemd/notify; it has inode number 7734.  The "type" in snmpd.service is "notify", and in /var/log/messages there are these messages:

Sep 20 13:06:01 mimmi systemd[1]: snmpd.service operation timed out. Terminating.
Sep 20 13:06:01 mimmi snmpd[16675]: Received TERM or STOP signal...  shutting down...
Sep 20 13:06:01 mimmi systemd[1]: Unit snmpd.service entered failed state.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. systemctl start snmpd.service
Actual results:
Job failed. See system logs and 'systemctl status' for details.

Expected results:
Snmpd up and running.

Additional info:
There are additional messages from snmpd in /var/log/messages.  I don't BELIEVE these are the reason for the problems.  If I start snmpd from the command line, these messages also show up, but snmpd seems to work anyway.  But just in case, I attach those messages too.
