Package: elogind
Version: 241.3-1+debian1
Followup-For: Bug #919694

I just ran into this myself. Why is this still unfixed?
Freezing the laptop(’s playing music) just because I close it
is utterly inacceptable as a default setting.

See below for a change to /etc/elogind/logind.conf which,
after a sudo cleanenv / /etc/init.d/elogind restart, fixed
this for me.
