[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#320261: xfce4: xfce becomes default window manager on upgrade within sarge

Package: xfce4
Version: 4.0.5-1
Severity: serious
Justification: XFCE installs itself and becomes the default without asking.

Upgrading to the newest version of sarge (with xfce not installed, and kdm and kde installed), xfce is installed for reasons beyond my ken, and becomes the default window manager for everyone. So far I haven't found a way to remove that default short of removing XFCE.

Other information: LTSP is installed on the system using the debian ltsp
installer package.
