Package: lightdm
Version: 1.2.2-3
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

lightdm does not properly remember which session a user selected last time.

Steps to reproduce:
* Select a non-default session in lightdm
* Log in
* Reboot the PC
* Do not touch the session selection, just log in again

Expected behaviour:
The session type I used last time should also be used now

Actual behaviour:
The default session is used (so the decision is delegated to /etc/X11/Xsession)

Additional information:
Interesting enough, the last session type I used *is* properly stored in ~/.dmrc. It seems that file is entirely ignored when logging in though.

Kind regards,
