Isn't it this issue?


I'm afraid I can't replicate the problem, though, as I don't have
a "log off" button or menu entry. That might suggest that the
problem is in something I don't run, like the DE or DM. (I assume
we're all using systemd.)

When I run multiple jobs through multiple ssh commands, I find
they're in different scopes, eg:


(To see the slice and scope, add cgroup to your ps command.
Add it as the last option, or its output might get truncated.)

When you've logged in to X, what slice/scopes do you see for X and
the processes you previously started? Are they all the same?

I think I've read that the way to get round this (or "go with the
flow") is to run the earlier processes as user services under systemd,
but I've not tried it.
