[Pkg-systemd-maintainers] Bug#729134: libpam-systemd wreaks havoc

Package: libpam-systemd
Version: 204-5
Severity: important

I was having issues with my computer lately:
- I wasn't able to mount USB keys anymore in thunar ;
- I wasn't able to shutdown/restart/hibernate anymore in xfce ;
- even when logged out, lightdm didn't allow shutdown/restart/hibernate.

I searched around, and found bug #728361 against lightdm, where someone
mentioned kicking out libpam-systemd was fixing the lightdm problem.

In fact all three problems listed above are fixed by removing
libpam-systemd, so this package breaks several unrelated things.

I hope that helps,
