I no longer select "Desktop Environment" when first installing Debian on a
host. I unselect it, leaving "Standard system" in place. Then I add only
the things I really want: gdm, fluxbox, mrxvt, mutt, slrn, vim/vim-gtk, GNU
dev tools, valgrind, doxygen, graphviz, ncftp, iceweasel, mpd/mpc/gmpc,
OpenOffice, gkrellm+plugins, cups, samba, nfs-server, xbindkeys,
openssh-server, and then whatever is suggested by the dependencies.
