Bug Description

Whenever I upgrade systemd on my groovy system, my gnome session is terminated.

This is very annoying, as everything that was running on that session is terminated.

NetworkManager also stops running.

I tried reproducing this in a VM, but it was able to upgrade systemd with no problems, is there anything in your logs indicating why the gnome session was terminated?

Hey, Dan.

Thanks for looking into this. I am attaching a journal log from the time I got the failure.

It looks like something happened to dbus, but it's hard to tell what, if anything.

Was this upgrading from 246.6-1ubuntu1.2 to 246.6-1ubuntu1.3, or some other versions?

i've tried a few times upgrading with different combinations of package versions, but i can't seem to reproduce any problem that terminates the gnome session. I assume you haven't seen it happen again, since there hasn't been another systemd upgrade yet for groovy?
