Package: lightdm
Version: 1.0.6-3
Severity: normal

xdm wdm slim gdm3 and kdm set "Provides:  x-display-manager".  This is
one of the virtual package.  I think this is required by policy:

I found this irregularity when I was looking for the cause of killed X
just after removal of xdm while having lightdm installed.  I do not know
this chenge help or not, though.  I vaguely remember switching between
xdm and gdm was smooth.  This seems to be one of the cause.
