After systemd upgrade from 249.7-2 to 250.2-1, the
machinectl shell command stopped working. The console output:
$ sudo machinectl shell vas@deb3 Connected to machine deb3. Press ^] three times within 1s to exit session. Connection to machine deb3 terminated.
The machine deb3 is alive however, it can be entered via
machinectl login deb3.
The journal inside the virtual machine (a Debian container set up as described in archlinux wiki article “Systemd-nspawn#Create_a_Debian_or_Ubuntu_environment”) prints the following error:
deb3 systemd: email@example.com: Succeeded. deb3 systemd: firstname.lastname@example.org: Consumed 1ms CPU time. deb3 systemd: Started Shell for User vas. deb3 systemd: Assertion 'a' failed at ../src/basic/path-util.c:433, function path_compare(). Aborting. deb3 systemd: email@example.com: Main process exited, code=dumped, status=6/ABRT
Downgrading systemd to 249.7-2 is a workaround. Trying to google up the above error message has not resulted in any enlightenment.
I could file a more formal bug report, where is the right place for issue reporting?
