smoser - I think you make a really good point. A regression in an LTS
distribution that results in a working configuration to no longer work
is fairly serious - as is introducing behavioral changes in an LTS.
While I'm generally in favor of fix-forward, it's not always the right
approach. I acknowledge changes are hard, and there's not always a clear
or right answer, especially given the vast diversity in exactly what
people do with their systems and how they configure them. This is a
larger discussion around change management, and my opinions here are a
bit off-topic as it relates specifically to this bug, so...
I retested with xenial-proposed and the system rebooted fine for me.
