Are you sure? I don't think alacarte, gnome-applets, gnome-applets-data,
gnome-control-center, gnome-desktop-data, gnome-panel and whatnot are
included in Xubuntu.... Something is pulling this in.

Isn't there a way to see which packages pull these in?

Or perhaps its the use of aptitude - I believe it also pulls in
"recommends". Try using apt-get or configuring aptitude to only install
dependencies.

Good Luck,
