As I mentioned, the bug reporter didn't have systemd-sysv or
systemd-shim installed.

In 204-9 we tightend the dependencies of libpam-systemd to depend on
systemd-sysv | systemd-shim.

That's the reason why this bug is marked as fixed in 204-9 and I told
him to install systemd-shim manually.

We could extend the check in acpi-support-base to test for the existence
of the systemd-shim binary or the /run/systemd/system directory (which
only exists if systemd is PID 1).
This would also cover the upgrade case Steve mentioned.

universe are pointed away from Earth?
