    I've been getting those every 15 minutes.

    I ignore them.

    I seem to recall seeing them in opensuse 11.3, perhaps earlier. I believe that they are from a cron job that runs every 15 minutes. The are more complicated now, because the systemd user manager process is being started each time - that maybe started at 12.3 or 13.1 if I recall.

    11.3? No, there was no systemd then.
    If you mean 13.1, then yes, I get them.

    Yes, apparently each time cron starts a job (session) systemd logs an
    awful lot of text.

    Oh, okay. Thanks.
