I saw the conversation between warpme_: & hampton: on IRC Thursday and was
checking myself. I believe 3109af7cf8 is OK but was only looked at
--systemd-journal and --logpath:

Interesting that --systemd-journal is working on my 16.04 host but not
on my 18.04 one. Both on aea1635b95. Haven't figured that out yet.
