I created this install following the instructions at http://syn.theti.ca/2013/06/22/tutorial ... ce-on-usb/ except using the Jessie standard live iso (no DE installed by default). Basically dd the image to one partition on the drive, make an ext4 partition for persistence, then change all the isolinux symlinks to syslinux.

I installed xorg and openbox with: apt-get install xorg openbox lxpanel

I can't create a test user at the moment as I'm not able to access the install, but i can tell you that logging in as root doesn't result in X and OB starting on their own.

Also have a look at ctrl-alt-Fn ... alternative consoles. They could all be be logged in also.

Security flaw. Lock your screen ... anyone else can come along and just Ctrl-Alt-F3 or whatever and have access. Full access if sudo su is also permitted.

Not just Debian (Stretch) ... its in Devuan RC 1 as well, so not a systemD issue. The indications being that its a bug in live-boot initialisation as the exact same system booted as though fully installed works correctly/as-expected.
