 Well, I've tested it too with bullseye on KVM and reproduced it, however,
 it's only under root privilege. Just run "$ podman run -it --rm debian sh"
 via normal user and it returns 0.

 And also tested with my daily driver unstable system I cannot reproduce it.
 (But sid on KVM can reproduce it, hmm...)

 It may be better to downgrade as important if it's only root privilege, IMO.
