Package: desktop-base
Version: 4.0.0
Severity: normal

After I had upgraded desktop-base to 4.0.0 yesterday, today I was forced
to see a very weird login desktop totally unlike what I had configured
for kdm and have been using for years.

At first, I was unable to find any clue whatsoever about how to get rid
of the new login desktop.  At the very least, the change (and how to
revert it) should have been mentioned in desktop-base's NEWS.Debian or
changelog file!

Luckily, I found a posting about the issue on one of the Debian mailing


I think there should also be a way to disable that option via the KDE
control center.  At least that's where I looked for it.

While I don't use Debian stable releases, I suggest that Debian doesn't
accept such last minute changes without the usual 10 days review, as it
seems to have happened here.
