I'm not using Debian, I'm using Devuan.  Also I was talking to Bill and 
then you jumped in, so I explained the problem to you and why I don't 
recommend Bill upgrading from Jessie.  I'm pretty sure what's going on 
is a security problem and part of that systemd crap that has not been 
rooted out yet.  Besides I like using Jessie and hate to upgrade, but I 
will test most anything and give a report *if I feel like it*.  Also I'm 
not much of a joiner. :)

I'm sure the problem will be fixed in time it just takes a couple of 
years.  In the meantime Dev's will be using Jessie and will not notice 
the problem.  If you're in Yosemite I worked there for about 10 
yrs(early 80's to the early 90's), just thought I'd let you know.
