What's the trick with X 3.2?

In this particular case it's a bug in the gwm package; it depends on
xlib when it should have depended on elf-x11r6lib. If you remove it
before upgrading, the upgrade should work.
You may find that there are other packages with a similar bug. You can
tell which package it is that is getting in the way; dpkg tells you here:
> dpkg: considering removing xlib in favour of xlib6 ...
> dpkg: no, cannot remove xlib (--auto-deconfigure will help):
> gwm depends on xlib (>= 3.1.2-4)
> xlib is to be removed.
> dpkg: regarding xlib6_3.2-1.deb containing xlib6:
> xlib6 conflicts with elf-x11r6lib
> xlib provides elf-x11r6lib and is installed.
> dpkg: error processing xlib6_3.2-1.deb (--install):
> conflicting packages - not installing xlib6
> Errors were encountered while processing:
Once you have upgraded the X packages you can re-install the buggy
packages using the --force-depends option.
