I've got display manager problems with TDE 14 on Jessie, after an upgrade 
where I stupidly rebooted before running dpkg-reconfigure tdm-trinity.  
Problem solving was taking so much time that I am living with it until I have 
the opportunity to reinstall.

Mine emergency boots into LXDE, which I uninstalled and which <aptitude show> 
and <aptitude search> both say is not there.  To use the American term, I 
hope correctly, go figure.
