Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 817968
Automatic restart of service causes its BoundBy dependencies to stop but not start again

[1/4] schedule JOB_RESTART from SERVICE_AUTO_RESTART state
A service may automatically restart if the Restart option is set (for example, if the service fails and has Restart=on-failure). When this happens, any other services that BindTo this service are stopped, but they do not start again after the automatic restart is complete.
This was fixed upstream in commit 48bb58769a00e8e50a617ebbfff84599a0350fa5. Unfortunately it introduced a regression in OnFailure handling, but a three-patch fix for that has been posted and is waiting upstream review.
This bug is created to track the inclusion of these fixes in Fedora. The patches attached to this bug are the same as the four patches sent upstream, except they have been backported for systemd 44, which is currently in rawhide and f17.

David, thank you for the patches and for testing the builds. I saw your karma.
I'm going to let the builds stay in updates-testing for a few more days to give users a chance to notice any regressions.
systemd-44-12.fc17 has been pushed to the Fedora 17 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.

Michal, if you would still like additional testing of the Fedora 16 build, can you please send an email to email@example.com and solicit testers? This build is not being listed on their automated emails because it has reached critical path approval, so I think it has fallen off everyone's radar.
(I tried to subscribe to the list but it's not going through for me.)
systemd-37-25.fc16 has been pushed to the Fedora 16 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
