Hi Nio,

there are probably many bugs related to the switch to systemd The guys are
patching as fast they can. These bugs are actually not lubuntu specific.
For this one, Mathieu has taken up the challenge. This bug falls in #1,

So, the call is for testers and not our head of dev. Get the 16.04 tested
and tested again... There are three types of bugs...
1. Common across all flavours
2. Applications we ship with
3. LX stuff.

Only #3 do we have direct control of. That is not to say we do not chase
bugs in #1 and #2 :D

So, go and convert people and get them to try 16.04 :)
