--- Comment #5 from Martin Steigerwald <Martin at Lichtvoll.de> ---
In Debian there has been a lengthy discussion and bug report about
"KillUserProcesses=yes" since it basically breaks screen sessions started by
the user and many other things.

Bug#825394: systemd kill background processes after user logs out

As a consequence of this Ubuntu/Debian systemd maintainer Martin Pitt reverted
this change of default config for now.

I certainly would also disable it, cause in case I need to restart my Plasma
session due to a hangup which still happens, while in a screen a borgbackup is
running, I of course want that borgbackup to continue its work.

If processes of a user session do not shut down on session shutdown, it is a
bug – except for those where it is intended, like a screen session. Just
killing all processes just masks that bug and invites to write broken software
and makes it necessary to separate a screen or otherwise long running process
from the session where it was started from, in this case even probably by using
systemd specific API.

Also setting to confirmed, cause, well was confirmed here already by Jonathan.
