[systemd-devel] systemd not in a steady state, although system is fine.

My system appears healthy, but for some reason systemd not in a good state.

>From the commands and their output, I have two concerns.
1) why is the state "starting" and not finished?
2) what are these "jobs" that are running?

This happens to be four luks partitions that go into a btrfs filesystem
(which is mounted fine).  I also have another btrfs filesystem made of two
luks partitions that aren't showing this issue (and is also mounted fine)

Any documentation or pointers as to how to debug would be nice.  running


[root at static ~]# systemctl status | head -3

    State: starting
     Jobs: 4 queued

[root at static ~]# systemctl --state=dead
UNIT                       LOAD   ACTIVE   SUB  JOB   DESCRIPTION
dev-mapper-hp22.cfs.device loaded inactive dead start
dev-mapper-hp28.cfs.device loaded inactive dead start
dev-mapper-hp29.cfs.device loaded inactive dead start
dev-mapper-hp30.cfs.device loaded inactive dead start

LOAD   = Reflects whether the unit definition was properly loaded. ACTIVE
= The high-level unit activation state, i.e. generalization of SUB. SUB
= The low-level unit activation state, values depend on unit type. JOB
= Pending job for the unit.

4 loaded units listed. Pass --all to see loaded but inactive units, too.
To show all installed unit files use 'systemctl list-unit-files'.
