Bug Description

The session support added to Upstart for Natty disallows user jobs with the same name as system jobs. This seems like an artificial restriction.

What is also missing is a D-Bus method which allows initctl to query the session+chroot details associated with each job. Thus, "initctl list" currently intermingles system jobs and user jobs with no indication as to which jobs are of which type.

Hmm, interesting - I thought the current code allowed them to co-exist
and just "hid" the global one when in a session
