Package: xfce4
Version: 4.10.1
Severity: critical
File: xfce
Justification: breaks the whole system

I updated xfce4 along with several other packages yesterday, and after
rebooting the pc hanged while trying to load gdm. I uninstalled gdm and
installed slim instead and it worked, but xfwm4, xfsettingsd, xfdesktop and
most xfce apps don't work (xfce panel and the task manager work, everything
else doesn't). The pc is very slow and it turns out it's because there are 10
xfwm4, xfsettingsd and xfdesktop processes running, despite none of these
programs running. I'm running debian sid by the way.
