What I expected to happen: when booting computer for the first time, I used to reach the log-in screen, and then find the last used session (openbox session in my case) in the session field. Then I logged in and used my customised desktop

What actually happened. When I rebooted after the upgrade last night, the session field in the log in screen showed 'default' as the session. When I logged in, got error message, and ended up with LXDE session. When logging out and logging in again without rebooting, expected behaviour occured (openbox session)

Minimal steps to show bug: Reboot computer. Log in.

I'm assuming that this change in behaviour is related to the change from gdm to lxdm
