Description of problem:
I have noted this failure.

systemd-sysv-44-17.fc17.x86_64

How reproducible:
always on mine one setup


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have system with osa-dispatcher failing to start (=> in "Active: failed (Result: exit-code)" state)
2. Attempt to get its state in cron or somewhere
   (maybe fact it do not have terminal is important here)
   # at now
   at> systemctl status  osa-dispatcher.service
   at> <EOT>
   job 3 at Tue Aug  7 21:08:00 2012
3. Check result of the job


Actual results:
