[arch-general] How to reboot remotely without hanging ssh session?

   I remote administer one arch server and after moving to systemd I haven't 
found a way to reboot without hanging the ssh session. Prior to system, we 
could simply pass the shutdown command via ssh and the ssh session would 
complete/close before reboot took place: i.e.

$ ssh remote.host.org "sudo shutdown -r now"

   However with systemd, using "systemctl reboot" the ssh session hangs until 
the remote host reboot or a timeout occurs.

   Is there a better way to reboot a remote server and avoid this?
