I figure all issues have been already answered in this thread or
elsewhere, just let me add one more thing for the sake of the archives:

So, these are two issues:

D-Bus is really confused: when it drops privs, it wants to keep the
audit caps around. But if it didn't have those caps in the first place
it gets confused:


The second issue is that I broke the failure logic for socket units if
their service units fail continously. This is fixed in git. 


Hope this clears everything up.
