Indeed, thanks! That explains why it didn't happen directly after
reboot, but only after udev has been restarted at least once.

Maybe uninstalling cgroupfs-mount removes something that should have
been kept intact when elogind is also installed/running — and having
either cgroupfs-mount or elogind installed triggers the issue.
