Bug Description

Auto-login selected at installation time.

After installing other window managers from synergy,

such as gnome, kde, cairo-dock, etc.

logging out, selecting any other than Lubuntu, enters a blank Xwindows screen with only the mouse pointer.

NO right-click menu. NO functioning CTRL ALT Backspace to end the session.

The only way to stop X is from another terminal, "stop lightdm" for instance.

HOWEVER, "start lightdm" returns to the same stuck screen with no options or apps whatsoever. Not even ALT F2 works to launch things.

Editing ~/.dmrc or removing it does not help.
