Hello Joe,

sorry for the late answer! I didn't actually get your response by
mail, I just spotted it on the BTS when reviewing the current patch

That's all correct. Almost all similar fixes went upstream by now (see
http://people.canonical.com/~pitti/tmp/cgroup-sd_booted.txt for my
tracking list).

Right. I think I had some trouble actually finding an upstream bug
tracker, and I still cannot find one on http://saltstack.com.

I agree, this isn't that urgent in Debian. But it would be nice to get
fixed after wheezy's release, so that we can start working on
introducing logind into Debian. I'll apply it to the Ubuntu package
now, as we moved to logind.
