The reference run of kwin in testing passed┬╣. Really the only delta I
can spot, before and after the build (apparently the order of output can
vary), is the version of systemd's binary packages.

@kwin maintainers, do you have any idea how the libinput run and the
systemd run can fail in seemingly the same way, while it seems that both
runs were done with all binaries from testing (where a pure testing run
passes) and only their own respective binaries from unstable.
