Sorry, don't have Flight 6, but dist-upgraded Flight 5.  The issue
does not occur from a "server" install.  The gtk2-engines-gtk-qt
package is a dependency of kubuntu-desktop. There is a conflict only
if both desktops are installed.  Removing both of the Kubuntu packages
leaves .gtkrc-2.0 in the users directory, which breaks the
xubuntu-desktop login.
