To reach education-desktop-gnome with the education-* tasks currently in
sid you need to remove knowledge of education-desktop-kde as they both
fulfill the same recommendation in education-standalone, with -kde as
the favored one (the one listed first).

Alternatively you need to repackage the education-* tasks with -gnome
mentioned first.

The problem of too many packages pulled into a main-server-only setup
when using aptitude may be that some recommendations are not resolved by
tasksel (I suspect that only recommendations of task packages are
fulfilled, not indirect ones from pulled in packages).
