Hello Guys,
Did you open a bugreport for your issues? I had also some issues with
systemd --user services. But I have my services in /etc/systemd/user/ and my
problem was that they are not starting automatically although I have enabled
them. I have opened a bugreport for this here:


Please open an issue in the systemd-repository.

best regards
