Bug#878182: systemd: Should stop creating systemd-bus-proxy user

Package: systemd
Version: 234-3
Severity: normal

Systemd is still creating in postinst the systemd-bus-proxy user. That
user is no longer used upstream as all kdbus code was removed.

The user should no longer be created. It appears (but I haven't checked)
that it is safe to remove the user on upgrades, because the user never
created any files.
