Going back to this old bug report, coming from the times where jessie was

This has been fixed in my sid box for a while, but just reappeared in my
amd64 sysvinit system, apparently after systemd upgrade

systemd:amd64 (231-10, 232-1)
libsystemd0:amd64 (231-10, 232-1)
libpam-systemd:amd64 (231-10, 232-1)

I will try to track updates to know what will exactly make this problem
disappear. Other times this problem appeared and disappeared, but never
tried to track when it disappeared.

I am very curious about this because the origin of this problem seems
to mask another apparently unrelated problem I am having when switching X


(used lightdm there, but I remember the same thing happening with other DM).
The funny thing is that I cannot reproduce that #812791 while this #770885
bug is present.

By the way, a possible duplicate of this #770885 seems to be 

 #804165 lightdm: Options reboot,suspend,hibernate are all greyed out

Will let you know when I notice this problem gone.
