Package: libsystemd-login0
Version: 204-5
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

Login is taking something like 20 seconds (while the rest of the boot
was done after 9 seconds). Looking into dmesg, it does not report
anything being done before systemd-login reports the "new seat".

[    9.817328] e1000e: eth0 NIC Link is Up 100 Mbps Full Duplex, Flow Control: Rx/Tx
[    9.817450] e1000e 0000:00:19.0 eth0: 10/100 speed: disabling TSO
[    9.817505] IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_CHANGE): eth0: link becomes ready
[   33.275975] systemd-logind[2789]: New seat seat0.
[   33.277445] systemd-logind[2789]: Watching system buttons on /dev/input/event15 (Video Bus)
[   33.277641] systemd-logind[2789]: Watching system buttons on /dev/input/event9 (Power Button)
[   33.277823] systemd-logind[2789]: Watching system buttons on /dev/input/event3 (Lid Switch)
[   33.278009] systemd-logind[2789]: Watching system buttons on /dev/input/event10 (Sleep Button)
[   33.279761] systemd-logind[2789]: New session c1 of user manu.

TRying with two differents DMs and without DM got similar results: The
above timing is with lightdm.

With lightdm, after 9 seconds, black screen appears and only 20 seconds later does the login window appear.
With slim, the login screen appears fast but login never ends.
Without a dm, loging in in a console goes OK but blocks at the MOTD for
a long time before I get a prompt.

The bug may not be with systemd-login but I do not know better!
