Yeah I still need to look at that.

Is this not just a simple matter of enabling it? It starts fine here...
It may not have inherited the fact it's enabled in sysvinit properly,
but a simple "systemctl enable sshd.service" and a "systemctl start
sshd.service" should be enough. We perhaps want to setup a sshd.socket
file to allow on-demand loading however which is a better solution
overall for most systems with sshd.

Fixed in the lastest systemd package.

That bug appears to be fixed now from the report I've seen.

Same issue as sshd I believe. It's just a matter of enabling it.
