I thought Michael Biebl helped Serge Hallyn to provide a systemd
service for cgmanager (disabled by default), thus doing exactly what
you describe above. The package's files include
/lib/systemd/system/cg{manager,proxy}.service; is there anything wrong
with how those service definitions are being installed that allows
cgmanager to run on systemd without the user explicitly enabling it?

Best wishes,
