Sounds like a bug to me. I think it could be that we set the error state
but don't update the ipconfig/service state accordingly. Although you
are saying the service is in a error state.

So this here is probably not helping:

If possible could you check what the service state is when we hit the

TBH, the 'set_error' thing looks a bit strange. The commit message says

  service: Signal error property changes

  In order to allow clients to update the property in a manner similar to
  other service properties, signal changes in the service "Error" property
  key/value pair.

  The value "" is used when no error is asserted because D-Bus property
  changed convention has no semantics for indicating a key/value pair was
