Reason for asking:
If you want to have a choice between starting in LXDE or other options
(including simply Openbox) then it's important not to use LXDM versions
earlier than 0.3.0, as they have a bug which interferes with sessions
other than LXDE. The bug was worked around by adding support for .dmrc
in LXDM 0.3.0.
