Oh, unobservant me! The /usr/share/live-helper/lists/xfce and xfce-junior
both listed packages in this order:
Order matters! The dependency on a x-session-manager (which *is* in the
list of dependency alternatives, something I overlooked) was not satisfied,
forcing the inclusion of gnome-session. I have now reversed them and
committed the change in svn:
This pulls in xfce4-session first, so when gdm is installed, the dependency
is already satisfied and all is well.
But to the debian-jr people, to whom I appealed for help on this, I'd still
appreciate help giving xfce a more thorough test, as to date my focus has
been on gnome, and to a lesser extent, kde.
