Package: lightdm-gtk-greeter
Version: 1.6.1-5
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

When I select my language once in the language selector, I want to be
logged in with that language on all subsequent log-ins, until I select
another language in the language selector. That does not happen. I am
always logged with the language of the system-wide locale, unless I
select a language in the language selector.

My language setting in ~/.xsessionrc is overwritten. Ideally, the
language selector would have a option which leaves the setting in such
a script unmodified.

   * What led up to the situation?

I select english in the language selector and log in. Language is
english. I log out.

I make no selection in the language selector and log in. Language is

   * What outcome did you expect instead?

I expect that subsequent log-ins use the earlier selected language,
i.e. english in my case.

Note that the locale setting below is the result of logging in with
english as the selected language.
