It does, I took care on that during the lucid -> natty upgrade and as 
well in the lightdm switch keeping in mind the LTS -> LTS upgrade. I'll 
ensure that it works, but the additional "gnome-fallback" session should 
be installed on upgrade.

  Note that as for the natty -> oneiric upgrade, the user is moved to 
the unity session only if ligthdm is (which is the default) as the 
default desktop session manager.
