When the unit is started A is launched correctly but then after some time it gets killed with a term signal 15 and this happens before B is started and hence when B is launched it fails. Here's what my unit file looks like...
things started from ExecStartPre are supposed to be short lived, and
everything remaining after ExecStartPre is done is killed. If B
depends on A, then A and B should be separate units.

Security hole BTW.
