Package: xfce4
Version: 4.0.5-1
Severity: normal
Tags: experimental


Having read #290977 I installed xfce 4.2.1 from experimental, but I 
could not get it to start. After logging in (using WDM) I get a black 
screen and then Xserver restarts after a few seconds. I also tried using  
startxfce4 at the terminal, but no luck. :-(

This is the only error message I could find (from .xsession-errors and 
also it was returned when I tried to start with startxfce4):
xfce4-session: Unable to load failsafe session, exiting. Please check
               the value of the environment variable XDG_CONFIG_DIRS
               and make sure that it includes the following path:


The application 'xfce-mcs-manager' lost its connection to the display 
most likely the X server was shut down or you killed/destroyed
the application.

I was not sure what severity to go for, so I went for normal (as it is 
an experimental package) :-) Please change if necessary.

Ok, well glad you agree.  I don't know what you saw when you upgraded
but I suspect you won't have details now.

As long as everything is working and happy after the upgrade should be
