So, why does Xsession fail when XDM runs (not a user running startx)?

.xession in the user's home directory is for commands to be executed 
upon user login. You've put the commands you want to run in there?

What is failing in there? Is there an |.xsession-errors file in the 
user's directory? I would expect there to be one.
