Package: lightdm
Version: 1.8.2-1
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

upgrading to lightdm 1.8.2-1 today on sid caused:

(1) the greeter to not appear; only after a wait of >20 seconds and some
switching to console

(2) xfce4 power action buttons to be greyed out, and hardware power button
(configured to suspend) to be ignored

Workaround: back to gdm3

Kind regards,
