How to Crash Systemd in One Tweet

Nobody I know likes systemd, it's too intrusive in user space and goes way against the core Unix philosophy of doing one thing and doing it well.

The sooner systemd disappears out of the Unix/Linux eco system the better.

Thank you for exposing this bug. We tried it on our up-to-date RedHat 7.2 systems and sure enough they crashed very hard.

Now to get rid of Not-workManager.
