Dear Maintainer,

*** Reporter, please consider answering these questions, where 
appropriate ***

    * What led up to the situation?
aptitude safe-upgrade

    * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or
1. wrote .pkla rules for user access in /deb/polkit-1
2. confirmed gnome polkit authentication crashing on login
3. tried manually startng the agent

    * What was the outcome of this action?
No resolution.
This is the first instance of systemd on my machine and I'm seeing a lot 
of verbosity
from logind in dmesg.  Could this be relevant?
[  105.767325] systemd-logind[2623]: Failed to start unit 
user at 1000.service: Unknown unit: user at 1000.service
[  105.767342] systemd-logind[2623]: Failed to start user service: 
Unknown unit: user at 1000.service

[14553.672935] systemd-logind[2623]: Failed to abandon session scope: No 
such interface 'org.freedesktop.systemd1.Scope' on object at path 
     I believe 105.767342 concerns the failure of gnome authentication 
agent.  Not sure why logind is active.
     ~/#dpkg --search /sbin/init  returns sysvinit, but /etc/mtab shows 
systemd as a mount...

    * What outcome did you expect instead?
user authentication for external mounts and power manager.
