Bugs filed against X, bash and systemd. Only the much maligned systemd

https://lists.debian.org/debian-user/2019/01/msg01087.html

has had an analysis and discussion in -systemd. Silence from the X
and (in particular) the bash maintaners for 3+ years. It's hardly the
bug of the century, but, for something with an easy solution, the
silence is deafening.
