We have had a short discussion on #debian-edu channel on irc. Petter
suggested that maybe x-display-manager can be dropped from both.

When no other packages or init-scripts need a running display-manager
this could also be a workaround.

In any case this is something that needs to be solved for gdm too, as
the other way around (installing gdm when kdm is already installed)
would also fail. I've therefore cloned the bug to gdm.
