Re: systemd-logind emitting messages to the terminal upon login

(It just occurred to me that I posted the previous set of partial
"what's happening" descriptions under the unchanged Subject line of the
overall thread. Oops.)

I remember that bug, but as far as I recall and as far as I can tell
it's only about this one single line, not about the rest of the messages
I'm talking about.

Also, that bug report claims that this was fixed in systemd-shim
upstream in November 2014, but I'm still seeing it in the version of
systemd-shim which is now in Debian testing. Has the fix somehow not
made it into a Debian package yet? Is there more to the story which
didn't get discussed on that bug report?

...I should probably ask those types of questions _on_ the bug report,
