Well, I have always understood from other Debian users that it does, I have 
used several different DEs with Debian, all with the same set-up, and it does 
not apply to all other distros whichever DE you use.  I have not had a GUI 
root log-in since I abandoned a brief spell with OpenSuse many years ago.

I have always installed Debian with root enabled.  This may make a difference.
