Bug Description

I brought this up once on the lubuntu-desktop mailing list but thought I'd best file an official bug report.

Having followed development and the introduction of unity/gnome-shell/gnome3 somewhat closely I find many users looking for optional DE's and Lubuntu offers one such alternative.

Anyway I've noticed that installing "lubuntu-core" rather than the full "lubuntu-desktop" avoids installing duplicate apps with the exception of "galculator". I performed this test on a freshly installed Ubuntu i386 Alpha3 by using synaptic and selecting to install only "lubuntu-core". This is the history log from synaptic:

This is a very minor thing so I wouldn't want to see much dev time wasted on resolving it but felt it best to report it anyway.

It's a recommend of lubuntu-default-settings which bring galculator. I'll put it on Suggest to avoid this type of installation.
