ConsoleKit and libpam-systemd do not conflict.
The problem is, that the newest lightdm upload no longer registers a
ConsoleKit session if systemd-logind is active.
Most components in unstable (including policykit) still rely on
ConsoleKit to determine whether a session/user is active or not, though.
As no active ConsoleKit session found in this case, certain actions are
denied, like suspend, mounting external hard drives etc.
The point is, that a switch to logind needs to be done in co-cordinated
fashion. You need to switch the affected components in the correct order.

Correct, the XDG_RUNTIME_DIR clobbering has nothing to do with the
lightdm issue.

I don't see how "reenable" would fix this issue. Can you elaborate?


Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
