------------------------------+--------------------------------
 On Ubuntu xenial, systemd starts Tor before the IPv6 address is available
 and so Tor fails to assign an IPv6 address then exits. systemd tries to
 restart Tor (I think three times) but even by the last time there's still
 no IPv6 address assigned and hence Tor fails to start.

 As a work-around I added `RestartSec=10` to the systemd unit file to slow
 down the restart such that by the second time tor starts, there is an IPv6
 address available.

 See log file below.
