Tested with an Openstack 16.04 instance and having Mike Pontillo's while
loop hammering ten times in parallel on it. With dbus 1.10.6-1ubuntu3 I
quickly got logins taking about 25 seconds, after having installed the
dbus package from the sil2100 PPA I couldn't reproduce the issue

  systemd-logind must be restarted every ~1000 SSH logins to prevent a
  ~25 second delay

Bug description:
  I noticed on a system that accepts large numbers of SSH connections
  that after awhile, SSH sessions were taking ~25 seconds to complete.

  Looking in /var/log/auth.log, systemd-logind starts failing with the

  Jun 10 23:55:28 test sshd[3666]: pam_unix(sshd:session): session opened for 
user ubuntu by (uid=0)
  Jun 10 23:55:28 test systemd-logind[105]: New session c1052 of user ubuntu.
  Jun 10 23:55:28 test systemd-logind[105]: Failed to abandon session scope: 
Transport endpoint is not connected
  Jun 10 23:55:28 test sshd[3666]: pam_systemd(sshd:session): Failed to create 
session: Message recipient disconnected from message bus without replying

  I reproduced this in an LXD container by doing something like:

  lxc launch ubuntu:x test
  lxc exec test -- login -f ubuntu
  ssh-import-id <whatever>

  Then ran a script as follows (passing in ubuntu@<container-ip>):

  while [ 1 ]; do
      (time ssh $1 "echo OK > /dev/null") 2>&1 | grep ^real >> log

  In my case, after 1052 logins, the 1053rd and thereafter were taking
  25+ seconds to complete. Here are some snippets from the log file:

  $ cat log | grep 0m0 | wc -l

  $ cat log | grep 0m25 | wc -l

  $ tail -5 log
  real  0m0.222s
  real  0m25.232s
  real  0m25.235s
  real  0m25.236s
  real  0m25.239s
