Starting from systemd-247 when using GNOME, DBus gets restarted during shutdown or reboot. This leads to a 120 second delay during shutdown and a blinking cursor. You can only see that something hangs with hitting Ctrl+Alt+Del and/or Esc. This incline users into the bad decision to turn of the computer hard. I don't know how often systemd is currently syncing the disks and re-mounting during shutdown but this can lead to a data loss.

Additional info:
* package version(s): systemd 247.1-1 and a recent gnome-session
* config and/or log files etc.: see upstream
* link to upstream bug report, if any:

Steps to reproduce:
1.) Login into GNOME
2.) Restart or Shutdown

Logout from GNOME and then restart or shutdown from a TTY.

Upstream fix is available:

Can we please apply the that patch from upstream and add it to gnome-session?
Thank you
This task depends upon

My Arch + Gnome hangs every time I try to reboot it.
Applying the fix for this annoying problem would be very appreciated.
