I guess I’m missing some context: is this fixing a bug currently

This is one of two patches that fix a problem where any greetd greeter more complex than agreety hangs on boot, basically rendering greetd useless. I think the underlying cause is their being unable to connect
to seatd.sock?

At least, that's the symptom I know about. I'm not sure whether there
are others.

Is there a bug report, and do we have system tests for this
Problem started with conversation on guix-devel, and related commit.
Last message of thread:

I was travelling and missed that change, when I
"guix pull && guix system reconfigure"ed at home and realized the
problem, I submitted fixes in the form of two patches 56690 and 56699.

Then I was asked to open a bug report in guix-devel list, which is:

I admit I know little about greetd and cases where it might be used.
Having system tests for that would help make sure the relevant
functionality works.
There is:

 make check-system TESTS="minimal-desktop"

Patches in 56690 and 56699 now include the tests for this case as well.
