Package: xfce4
Version: 4.4.2
Severity: important

I install fluxbox and xfce4
then i make update-alternatives --config x-window-manager and chosen /usr/bin/startfluxbox
but after startx i have xfce on my desktop not fluxbox.
If i remove xfce4 - i can choose between fluxbox and twm in update-alternatives and always work fine.
If i install xfce4 again - startx load only xfce4.
