That puzzles me very much, 2.88dsf-22.1 is just an NMU from Christian
Perrier with translations stuff, for locales (I think) you don't use.

As far as I can tell, lightdm works fine with dependency based booting
everywhere else, so I'm pretty unsure it's lightdm fault, and I'm
reassigning to sysvinit.

For sysvinit people: lightdm initscript started to fail for James after
the 2.88dsf-22.1 (I'm a bit unsure of that version though, see above).
Reverting to previous versions seem to fix the problem, so I'm unsure
what the problem really is.

James, in any case, I think providing /etc/init.d/.depend.* might help
solving this.

Please keep me on CC: so I'm informed of the development. It might be
interesting to provide /var/log/lightdm.log
and /var/log/lightdm-gtk-greeeter.log, although the fact it works with
startx might means it won't show anything.
