Unity desktop stopped working after the first ’guix pull && guix
package -u’ in maybe 2 weeks. There has been no update on the Ubuntu
side between the last succesfull run and now, as far as I can tell.
Unity desktop causes a few redraws, then exits back to the session
greeter (lightdm).

Now I would have assumed that there is no interaction between Unity and
guix, since the former is entirely on the dpkg side. But via journalctl,
I found a whole lot of:

It looks like compiz segfaults shortly after a bunch of those, followed
by unity7.service.

Any ideas why dpkg-compiz tries to use guix-librsvg and what to do
about it, or what else is going on here?
