I did a quick try on sid (so with lightdm 1.10) but it seems that only
the guest profile is actually confined, and I'm not using it, so it's
hard to tell anyway :)

In any case (and wrt. your mail on d-d-a), I'll try to install AppArmor
and see what happens, although on a desktop box it seems that really not
much is actually confined.
