You could try:

1. Install without choosing Xfce. Untick the desktop item when asked to
   select software.

2. You'll boot into a tty. Login and and change sources.lst to "jessie".

3. Update, upgrade and dist-upgrade.

4. Reboot. Login and

	apt-get task-xfce-desktop


	apt-get xfce4 lightdm

   The first gives you what d-i gives you. The second has fewer packages
   but is fine. I'd choose the latter.

5. Reboot.

6. Hopefully report success. :)
