I think that is a very good point.

KDE is the only area where I have heard of this causing problems and I am not
aware of any other reports that seem to have the same underlying cause. I am not
convinced there *is* a consensus for change and the risk of changing the default
for all users of legacy DBus activation seems high.

Martin, I still think this is for KDE to address if it is important to them. I
don't think I would push to change the behaviour of DBus in either Debian or
Devuan at the moment.

Best wishes
