The point Cory was trying to make was that if you install the -desktop
metapackage and then remove it later, you may have problems.  In which
case you can just reinstall a vanilla Ubuntu 8.04 (you could fix it
without a reinstall, but this may be more effort than its worth if you
do not know where to look and what to do).
