Bug#810941: "systemctl stop gdm3" leaves session for Debian-gdm user (user-113.slice) running

Package: gdm3
Version: 3.18.2-1
Severity: normal

Recently (not sure when this changed), running "systemctl stop gdm3" no
longer stops all gdm3-related processes; it leaves portions of the
greeter session running under "user-113.slice", running as the
Debian-gdm user.

This breaks "systemctl restart gdm3" and similar mechanisms.  Currently,
to fully restart gdm3, I have to stop gdm3, stop user-113.slice, and
then start gdm3 again.
