control: retitle -1 lightdm: User switching does not work (no gdmflexiserver provided)
control: severity -1 important
control: affects -1 lxsession xscreensaver

Well, I'm running LXDE & lightdm 1.2.2-4, and:
1) "Switch User" button is missing from LXDE logout dialog;
2) pressing XScreenSaver "New Login" button results only in an error message:
 xscreensaver: 11:22:33: could not execute "gdmflexiserver": No such file or directory
// OK, there's some bug #304406 about "New Login" button in xscreensaver without gdmflexiserver

Hence, I'm forced to use the bloated GDM3 just to have the quick user switching feature working.
