[arch-dev-public] systemd 197 - kdm fails

First of all, sorry for my recent absence, I was hoping to spend some
time on Arch over Christmas, which I didn't.

Anyway, today's systemd upgrade causes a problem which I was only able
to solve by downgrading:

When systemd launched kdm.service, X started, but the kdm greeter never
appeared - instead X just sat there with the busy mouse pointer.
systemctl stop kdm.service hung too, I could only kill -9 the X process.

When I downgraded to 196-2, the greeter started immediately after the
systemctl daemon-reexec in post_upgrade. I have no idea where to start,
so any help is appreciated.

Even worse: After the downgrade, systemctl start /boot (and thus the
automounter) didn't work, I had to mount /boot manually.
