Package: xfce4
Severity: normal

Installing xfce4 shoud depend on, or at minimum recommend, the installation of
the dbus package. Without dbus, things like xfce4's trash does not work at
 all, and the user's .xsession-errors files fills with complaints about 
"D-Bus library appears to be incorrectly set up".
