Btw, if you drop this line

then systemctl disable will work just fine.
I don't think you need the Alias anyway.
"systemctl start/stop/restart/status foo at 1.service" will work without it.

Is there a reason why create this symlink/alias?

I have to admit, I haven't seen anyone creating an alias like this for
instanced services before. That's why I don't consider it an important
problem which needs a fix for stretch via a stable upload.

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