It is unrelated to this specific issue, but it still does sound like my
patch is the source of the problem. Would you be willing to open a
separate ticket for tracking this, ison?

Yes, this output is normal. Shepherd loads service files by evaluating
Scheme expressions. I could have sworn that 'guix system reconfigure'
showed the same line prior to my patch.

ison -- I'm very sorry that you've had this experience. Would you be
willing to share the 'bootloader' field of your operating system
configuration so I can look into this?
