I haven't read the full discussion, so I missed the part that you are
apparently using a user crontab.

Just curious: Why are you starting the backup task via a user crontab
and not as a system cron job? Are you only saving the users /home/
directory?


It's correct, that "systemd --user"  is started if you log in, or if you
explicitly enable linger for this user (then it is started during boot).

I'd be interested to know, what exactly you have in mind here. I'm not
aware of such a breakage.
