I'm using LXDE with kdm instead of lxdm. With that I don't have this
issues anymore. You can probably also use gdm.

I was using
LXDM to login to xfce and raised this issue on the xfce

There's a couple of bug reports I linked to
in that thread, but there's
no fix and no action on them for some months.
As a consequence, I recently just tried changing
to LightDM and I can
logout/login okay. I was using LXDM previously because it had working
language selection, but that has now been fixed in LightDM too.
Peter, thankyou for your help.
Indeed I installed LightDM yesterday and switched to that - it worked first time.
Ps. you don;t need to magic keys reboot when this happens - CTRL-ALT F1 and log in,
Then either service xdm stop then start or init 3/init 5
The frustrating this is that LXDM comes up and works fine when you start xdm.
Come on LXDE guys - I really like the look of LXDM and it would do a good job.
