Title:
  xiterm+thai is installed and set to x-terminal-emulator

Status in lubuntu-meta package in Ubuntu:
  Triaged

Bug description:
  STEPS TO REPRODUCE
  ==================
   1. Install a daily version of Lubuntu Desktop Bionic or boot to the live 
system
   2. Check for where /etc/alternatives/x-terminal-emulator is symlinked

  EXPECTED RESULTS
  ================
  /usr/bin/lxterminal

  ACTUAL RESULTS
  ==============
  /usr/bin/txiterm

  AFFECTED VERSIONS
  =================
   * Desktop only; not Alternate
   * Bionic only; Artful is not affected
   * both amd64 and i386

  NOTES
  =====
   * lxterminal and xiterm+thai are both installed
   * postinst scripts on both packages set the update-alternatives priority to 
20 (this cycle lxterminal was lowered to this value)
   * lxterminal is installed after xiterm+thai and thus does not become the new 
x-terminal-emulator because of the priority being no greater
   * xiterm+thai is not explicitly required by our seeds
   * there is no package that xiterm+thai depends on (apt-rdepends -r), so 
there should be no indirect depend on it
   * germinate-output, cd-build-logs don't show xiterm+thai being installed
   * cd-build-image logs do show xiterm+thai being installed as a depend of 
apport-gtk
   * apport-gtk requires x-terminal-emulator, not a specific one
   * if a package satisfying a virtual package is not already installed, the 
selection is essentially random

  POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS
  ==================
   * explicity unseed xiterm+thai, which I think is more of a band-aid
   * ensure that lxterminal is installed before apport-gtk, which will ideally 
require running germinate locally
