Sorry, I mixed up with another problem that occurred with previous
versions. I have no problems on my Debian/unstable machines
(libpam-systemd still depends on systemd-sysv | systemd-shim),
but I've just realized that the reason is that I temporarily
blocked systemd upgrades for another reason. This is probably
the best thing to do because seeing how things evolve.
