now (in package "iodine=0.7.0-2") file ``/usr/lib/systemd/system/iodined.service`` not define ``Type=``.

in systemd -- default value for ``Type=`` is ``Type=simple``.

when used ``Type=simple`` (default value) -- systemd set status "active" when tun-device NOT yet initialized.

for iodined -- we *need* to use ``Type=forking`` (or other ``Type=``, but NOT ``Type=simple`` :)).

Additional info:

* package version:


* config and/or log files etc.

i attached fixed file ``/usr/lib/systemd/system/iodined.service`` to this message.

thanks in andvance! :)
