Need to purge xprint-common to get xorg 7 working


I've upgraded from Xork 6.9 to Xorg 7.0. While updating, aptitude
insisted on removing xprint. Then xprint-common was removed by
aptitude as it was no longer used.

Unfortunately, I couldn't get Xorg to start with startx. Long story
short, I found this error message in .xession-error:

  Xsession: X session started for root at Sun Apr 23 17:02:56 CEST 2006
  /etc/init.d/xprint: ## FATAL ERROR: Unknown XProjectRoot.

The solution was to purge xprint-common (instead of just removing the
package as suggested by aptitude).

I don't know if this behavior is normal with unstable or not. If you
want, I can log a bug agaisnt xserver-xorg.
