So, I was working on fixes for this in parallel which I have pushed
earlier today, which change a couple of things around in more complex
ways. Some of them conflict with yours changes. I'll commit the
ones of yours that still appear necessary. If you think I am missing
some, please let me know.

The new logic I commited changes around how scopes are used by
logind. Previously the KillUserProcesses= option in logind.conf would
influence KillMode= of the scope. However that was a bad idea since we
actually want to provide people a way to terminate sessions and we
actually need them to order things properly on shutdown so that scopes
go away before the network is removed, and suchlike. Hence I changed the
logic so we are OK with leavig scopes around from the logind side, we
just mark the session entries as "closing". KillUserProcesses= hence
simply controls whether we leave them around and hence the session in
"closing" or whether we actively shut them down.

Sorry for commiting into the middle of your work!
