That wasn't the case last time I tried AV Linux- I'm pretty sure it
uses openbox as per LXDE default. I'd need to check although I know
I've never seen any compositing enabled OOTB under the last few AVL

I'd rather see AVL using XFCE (w/ the GVFS disabled by default) and
doing so makes more sense now that Debian defaults to XFCE - Debian
being the underlying OS of AVL of course.

Anyway, I'm not going to whine to GMaq about that one as he's fully
aware of the alternatives and LXDE's drawbacks (more bugs + lack of
features vs XFCE). Its his distro and most users seem to be happy
enough with LXDE.
