When ~/.xsession contains only "exec twm", in tty2
$ ps -ef | grep twm
takagi 10610 10549 0 16:39 tty1 00:00:00 twm
takagi 10673 4063 0 16:40 tty2 00:00:00 grep twm
twm seems to be executed normally.
There seems to be no clues in ~/.xsession-errors.

Then I got strange result:
there was white box in top-left corner which seems to be a window of xterm.
But there was no characters on the window except for a text cursor box found in a proper place.
I couldn't input any text from keyboard, and no mouse pointer found.
The window border was jaggy and ugly.
There was no gray-black tiles on the root window, only black background.
$ ps -ef | grep xterm
takagi 10871 10870 0 16:41 tty1 00:00:00 xterm
takagi 10931 4063 0 16:41 tty2 00:00:00 grep xterm
I got similar results after copying ~/.xsession to ~/.xinit.
I can't find what to do...orz

I also using X on squeeze. There's no problem with the same xorg.conf.
