So I managed to reproduce the issue, and will try to look at what changes in
lightdm led to this (nothing stands out in the source diff but maybe that's
also a how the version were built).

I've tried to install dbus-user-session and it seems to fix the issue indeed.

One thing I've noticed is that system --user session keeps running after the
session is ended, which maybe doesn't happen under the previous lightdm
version. Could that be related?
