Verbose output of case 1 (concrete boot specified)

'journalctl <some executable>' misses entries depending on other arguments.
In contrast if no executable is specified, listed entries (filtered with 'grep') are complete.

'journalctl --verify' does not report any failure.

I noticed this bug with version 216-3 and just confirmed it with version version 217 bundled with Arch Linux.


Case 1: Entry of thunderbird is only listed if concrete boot is specified:

Case 2: Inconsistent output using '--since'; Listing of Oct 28th is not a superset of Oct 30th.
(No difference if '_EXE=/usr/lib/systemd/systemd-coredump' is used.)
