-                may be defined. The second parameter returns a monitor
-                object and needs to be freed with the
-                <function>sd_login_monitor_unref()</function> call
-                after use.</para>
-
-                <para><function>sd_login_monitor_unref()</function>

-                up the event loop via the file descriptor this

-                a wake-up is triggered the file descriptor needs to be
-                reset via
-                <function>sd_login_monitor_flush()</function>. An
-                application needs to reread the login state with a

-                timeout to wait for this will fill in
-                <constant>(uint64_t) -1</constant> instead. Note that
