When you "clean up" by killing things that are designed to run after
logout, you are being over-zealous. It is incumbent upon you to fix
your cleanup methods to handle this case, not the thousands of users
to change their process to avoid your broken methods.
But that's effectively calling for the impossible - if there has
historically been no way for things to announce that they are expected
to remain after exit then there's no way to magically identify them now.
What would be good would be if screen and similar programs could learn
to do the necessary magic automatically rather than having to be wrapped
in systemd-run by the user.
