Bug#906231: systemd: restarting systemd-logind causes power-button event to immediately shutdown cinnamon without asking

Package: systemd
Version: 239-7
Severity: important


Since some systemd ugprade (unfortunately I don't remember which one it was exactly, cause I
hit the problem only rarely)... when systemd-logind has been restarted, e.g. by needrestart
after upgraded and I press the powerbutton, cinnamon shuts down immediately, without asking
what I want to do (suspend, hibernate, restart, etc.) as usual.

Could as well be a bug in cinnamon itself but since it occured after some systemd upgrade
I report it first here... please reassign if you think it's cinnamon specific.

severity important, as it can be quite problematic if one has e.g. written some longer text
file and just wants to suspend the systemd... and then everything is gone as the system
shuts down without any further request ;-)
