Hello George,

Adding the list back on CC.  I can't tell you anything more than what I 
posted to the list and to the Ubuntu bug report: this seems to be a 
systemd bug, and executing "systemctl daemon-reexec" seems to work 
around it, or at least did when I had the same issue.  You probably want 
to be talking to Leonard and the systemd people about it though, not us.
