Great, you're quick. ;)

I noticed. That was the major reason why I didn't want to file another
one just yet.

To avoid any doubt, I have triggered a reference run, with only testing
(results in a hour or so). But the last successful run was on 19 June
and had libinput 1.10.7-1, which is the same version that systemd was
tested with. I checked the log of the systemd run, and nothing spurious
was installed from unstable, only the systemd binaries. On the other
hand, the test for libinput 1.11.1-1 had the same issue, and also there
no spurious packages from unstable were installed. So I fear we already
regressed testing and the systemd maintainers can further ignore the
kwin failure.
