You probably already know this, but I tested this with the last few
versions on the devel branch.

The problem occurs on versions up to and including commit
ce1a3c07c4e17ed176edccd75892dfcf8242de60 "bash-20200520 snapshot".
The problem does not occur on commit
37adc8b99d4c15dcb9e6582aa19a2ef61afb592f "bash-20200527 snapshot".

Yes, my system uses systemd.

Glad I could help.
