Description Michal Sekletar 2018-03-01 12:16:31 UTC
Description of problem:
Every PAM session has scope unit associated with it. In the session creation process, we also create stub unit file for the given scope unit alongside drop-in configuration for it. However, when the session ends we don't delete this stub unit file.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. ssh into the machine
2. cat /run/systemd/system/session-${XDG_SESSION_ID}.scope
3. log out
4. ssh back again
5. env | grep XDG_SESSION_ID (session ID should be different)
6. verify that old session scope unit file is still present

Actual results:
Old session-${XDG_SESSION_ID}.scope unit file present in /run/systemd/system

Expected results:
Unit file is deleted when session ends
