Yes.  Did I do that?  Oops.  Sorry.

When you do your next MU, please also make the following change to the
prerm (see #113070):

      if [ "$THIS_PACKAGE" = "$RET" ]; then
        db_fset shared/default-x-display-manager isdefault true
        db_input critical shared/default-x-display-manager || true
        db_go
        db_get shared/default-x-display-manager
+       if [ -e $DEFAULT_DISPLAY_MANAGER_FILE ] && \
+          [ "$(cat $DEFAULT_DISPLAY_MANAGER_FILE)" != "$THIS_DISPLAY_MANAGER" ]; then
+         rm $DEFAULT_DISPLAY_MANAGER_FILE
+       fi
        message "Please be sure to run \"dpkg-reconfigure $RET\"."
