I don't remember precisely, but in my case I don't think it was caused
by the X server. I think that this is a systemd bug where systemd's
internal state gets out of sync, and that it can be caused by lots of
different things (the first report I saw of it was over a year ago<1>,
so probably long before that X server version appeared).
