[systemd-devel] A multi-seat failure

I have presented the following issue to the debian maintainers of
systemd who suggested to approach this list.
I have been using a 2-seated desktop for the past few years without an
hitch. Recently, I upgraded some software, the end result of which is
that the second seat does not behave as expected. Lightdm runs two X
processes, one for each seat. Seat0 is fully functional, but the mouse
and keyboard assigned to seat1 effect the monitor attached to seat0.
The configuration I have used successfully in the past employed loginctl to
attach a video card, a keyboard, and a mouse to the second seat and
reboot. But this scheme fails to work after the software update (which
included systemd and lightdm), with the symptoms I have mentioned.
I might add that the xorg log associated with the second seat contains
systemd-logind: failed to get session: PID XXXX
does not belong to any known session
Not sure of its significance.
I think the relevant software is:
systemd 241, lightdm 1.26 xserver 1.20.4, dbus 1.12.12, kernel 5.02 .
Would anyone suggest how to go about finding the cause?
