blueman upstream defaults to installing the files for thunar-sendto.
Andreas, was there any specific reason why you made this conditional
instead of keeping it enabled unconditional with only an RSUGGESTS
on thunar?

gdmflexiserver looks like a workaround for something that should be
fixed properly instead to me.
But short-term adding it to the normal lxdm recipe in meta-oe might
be an options?
