Quick update:

We have released a new version of systemd now with all bugs reported
here fixed. It's also in Rawhide already, but it might not have hit
all mirrors yet. To download it directly, please use:


And please remember to turn selinux at least into permissive mode when
using this, or even turn it off entirely while testing ("kdbus=1
selinux=0" on the kernel command line).

Thanks a lot to everybody who already tested this!

Please test the new version, any feedback much appreciated!
