Description Giovanni Campagna 2014-09-13 22:46:46 UTC
If $HOME (or any parent directory) takes too long to mount, for example because it is an autofs being fscked, pam_systemd will timeout and proceed to open the session without XDG_SESSION_ID (which will crash gnome-shell)
Comment 1 Lennart Poettering 2019-11-13 10:30:43 UTC
We nowadays set a very long timeout for the CreateSession() bus call (which is what pam_systemd ultimately calls), which should fix the issue. if you can reproduce on current git, please file a new bug on github.
