No, the job *tries* to start. It is not "started" unless the pre-start
script completes successfully. When the pre-start script instead exits
non-zero (because it's run under sh -e and one of the commands has failed -
presumably the last), the job is then unwound to a "stopped" state.

So since the mkdir/touch commands are obviously succeeding, we need to see
the output of the resolvconf command to see what's going on here.
current precise upstart + a reboot should give you this in
