Description Lukas Middendorf 2011-04-30 17:19:21 UTC
Description of problem:
When systemadm is started, a lot of lines
dbus: [system] Service 'org.freedesktop.systemd1' is already active
appear in /var/log/messages . At some point rsyslogd does rate limiting and drops further messages.

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

How reproducible:
seems to happen always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start sytemadm
2. look at /var/log/messages
Actual results:
a flood of identical messages with much more dropped because of rate limiting

Expected results:
no messages, or very few

Additional info:
Not sure if this problem really is in dbus or systemadm. I selected systemd because this is the component that triggers the bug.
