I agree. I also would like to point out that current test builds of gnome live images have this
issue. So without further effort to make a live-specific fix for this issue (something we try to
avoid, as live images should reflect as closely as possible what someone sees when they install
Debian) every time the live image is booted they will see this image unless they happen to be using
persistence (which takes special effort by the user to set up, as it requires some place to write
the persistence data to be explicitly designated).
