DNSCrypt-proxy service no longer works (but dnscrypt itself works)

After [Stable Update] 2023-03-31 the service file of dnscrypt-proxy (from 2.1.2-1 → to 2.1.4-2) no longer works:

× dnscrypt-proxy.service - DNSCrypt-proxy client
     Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/dnscrypt-proxy.service; enabled; preset: disabled)
     Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Fri 2023-03-31 10:49:27 CEST; 2s ago
   Duration: 212ms
       Docs: https://github.com/jedisct1/dnscrypt-proxy/wiki
    Process: 6317 ExecStart=/usr/bin/dnscrypt-proxy --config /etc/dnscrypt-proxy/dnscrypt-proxy.toml (code=exited, status=255/EXCEPTION)
   Main PID: 6317 (code=exited, status=255/EXCEPTION)

But if I manually starts sudo dnscrypt-proxy --config /etc/dnscrypt-proxy/dnscrypt-proxy.toml it works, so there is a problem with the service file.

Yeah, I’ve found the solution here:

The “trick” was to comment:

#listen_addresses = ['']

in /etc/dnscrypt-proxy/dnscrypt-proxy.toml.
Very strange however: I had listen_addresses since I installed dnscrypt-proxy about two years ago and I never faced the mentioned issue.
