[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#636111: lightdm: do "default" session and restarts if user doesn't select one

Package: lightdm
Version: 0.9.2-2
Severity: normal


By default no session is selected (the selector is just blank) and if 
the user doesn't specifically select a session from the drop-down 
lightdm just restarts itself.

In case you're wondering
