Specifically, ${XDG_RUNTIME_DIR}/systemd/private . It also creates
/notify, but I wasn't sure which one was needed for this, so I just
mentioned the directory (when I have it not show up, the whole
systemd directory is missing)

"private" should be created by systemd's
src/core/dbus.c:bus_init_private(), but I imagine the problem actually
comes from higher up.

Unless I missed something, there are no relevent commits since release
v212, no relevent emails on the mailing list, and no relevent
bug-reports on bugzilla.  If you like, I encourage you to report this
bug with systemd.  If you don't, I'll report it this weekend after
digging in to the cause a bit more.

Happy hacking,
