[trinity-devel] Stretch: systemd default target multi-user is ignored

TDM according to ps -A is "running" when init completes even though multi-user
is default target, and regardless whether 3 or 5 or neither is included on
cmdline. Killall tdm then startx does produce a TDE session, but there's no

There doesn't seem to be any kind of clues I can decipher in any logs:

Is ignoring the default target normal or expected on Debian running systemd?
Searching BZ for comment including systemd and target produced no hits except
for an Ubuntu crasher. Is there some way to get TDM to not start automatically
on Stretch boot?
