This is not the kernel problem but probably /etc/Xsession:

* debian/xfree86-common/Xsession:
  - remove support for /etc/X11/window-managers; virtually every window
    manager has migrated to the new alternatives method (Closes: #58224)

In order to "close" one bug, a number of new ones were introduced...
