Francios, All, I wanted to take this discussion out of bug 1902 temporarily to see if we cannot further the issue on list. According to the freedesktop links for accommodating clean-systemd (consolekit free) user session/process tracking, one of the tests to establish if session tracking is active is to check: $ loginctl show-session $XDG_SESSION_ID Id=1 Timestamp=jeu. 2014-02-20 21:01:46 CET TimestampMonotonic=14146902 VTNr=7 Display=:0 Remote=no Service=tdm-trinity Scope=session-1.scope Leader=984 Audit=1 Type=x11 Class=user Active=yes State=active IdleHint=no IdleSinceHint=0 IdleSinceHintMonotonic=0 Name=francois for the presence of 'Remote=no' and 'Active=yes'. Francios reports that he is using a consolekit free environment and has provided the output above which indicates that session tracking is active on his install -- BUT -- he is experiencing the exact same problems with tdeio_sftp /file/http/ connection being left open on his install. I have been making very slow progress understanding what is going on. I think in Francios case he has established proper 'user session tracking' showing that session tracking can with in TDE in this case without code changes. However, I think it is the 'user process tracking' part that is not working and causing the tdeio process to remain open. What we need to establish is what config Francios is using that allows proper user session tracking to be established. In my clean-systemd environment, I get: 22:19 valhalla:~> loginctl show-session $XDG_SESSION_ID NAutoVTs=6 KillExcludeUsers=root KillUserProcesses=no IdleHint=yes IdleSinceHint=0 IdleSinceHintMonotonic=0 InhibitDelayMaxUSec=5s HandlePowerKey=poweroff HandleSuspendKey=suspend HandleHibernateKey=hibernate HandleLidSwitch=suspend IdleAction=ignore IdleActionUSec=30min PreparingForShutdown=no PreparingForSleep=no From the documentation that shows I do not have it configured properly. I believe it may have to do with differences in the /etc/pam.d config. Francios, what are you using? I think the users 'process' tracking may have to do with code current wrapped within consolekit preprocessor checks that is not duplicated outside these checks but is necessary for process tracking in the absence of consolekit. This is also where I am focusing effort to learn what additions to the kdebase/tdm/backend code may be needed to comply with the freedesktop.org systemd environment. Francios, let me know your thoughts on this and Slavek let me know if you have any other suggestions as well. I am encouraged to see Francios has part of the correct config working. -- David C.
