Android client fails to auto start connection if using a DDNS address as endpoint

I too have this issue. My ISP does not provide a fixed IP address and
if the address changes, the Android client does not reconnect. Not
very user friendly as it is hard to do external checks and restart on
Also this is true for the desktop version of wireguard, at least on
Linux with both ifupdown and systemd-networkd (i could script a check
and restart easily though).
