Since the upgrade of the following packages:

[2015-09-21 11:34] [ALPM] upgraded libsystemd (225-1 -> 226-1)
[2015-09-21 11:34] [ALPM] upgraded libdbus (1.10.0-2 -> 1.10.0-3)
[2015-09-21 11:34] [ALPM] upgraded dbus (1.10.0-2 -> 1.10.0-3)
[2015-09-21 11:34] [ALPM] upgraded systemd (225-1 -> 226-1)
[2015-09-21 11:34] [ALPM] upgraded systemd-sysvcompat (225-1 -> 226-1)

I have noticed behaviour whereby a new instance of is started on every login and the old instances are not killed off on logout, meaning that after several logins, several instances of will be running concurrently.

Downgrading the aforementioned packages makes this issue disappear. Also, adding pkill to my ~/.xprofile works as a workaround.

I'm using Xfce4 and LightDM.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
(dbus and systemd packages shown above)
system-config-printer 1.5.7-1
lightdm 1:1.16.2-1
xfce4-session 4.12.1-2

Steps to reproduce:
Upgrade the dbus and systemd packages as shown above. Then, ensuring that will be autostarted by the desktop environment, log out and in again multiple times. Multiple instances of will be running
This task depends upon

If this is still an issue please check if it is also present in a recent system-config-printer git pkg or ask upstream/file a bug/post to its mailing list.
