Control: severity -1 important


Apparently, this is completely broken now. Not only does lightdm not
rememeber what session a user chose last time they logged in, but
moreover, it actually just lets the session selection sit at what
the last user who logged in, chose.

Thus, if the previous user logged in with the i3 window manager even
though the user currently logging in chose MATE the last time he
logged in, he will actually be logging in with i3 unless manually
selecting MATE again.

This is something that should have been fixed before the release,
but I guess it's too late now, isn't it? I am at least raising
this to "important" as it is a very annoying issue which makes
multi-user setups more difficult to use.
