  6. debian lxc - screen killed out logout

    So I've been struggling with this for a few hours and everything I've found online leads to huge arguments about how systemd (back in 2016?) changed a default to kill all user processes on logout. Well that sounds ok, but it kills things like screen. screen has been used for many many years...
