OK, done. Confirmed working. All symptoms gone.
I thought that would be totally obvious so I initially didn't even brother reconfirming it for this case.

I wouldn't know exactly what needs to be changed but I know it's all caused by systemd.

Now that I've confirmed this it's quite clearly not an issue with light-locker.
