This is exactly what it is doing here. How did you manage to have it
logged in on all terminals? I have tested the iso several times on vm
and different real hardware and never had this issue.

Sorry, I forgot about the display-manager issue (afaik this was
introduced in later versions of systemd). But you guys are a little
overreacting here. I don't see how this would justify a new iso release.
All that happens is that systemd prints a warning in its journal. There
is no error on startup; it even prints a green OK here.

It is correct to enable the multi-user.target again.

But to be clear here, there is no visible effect as this target was
activated by the graphical target anyway.

How about you watch your tone? Nobody is going to work on this project
if we insult each other when minor errors are made.
