An empty .xsession file will crash Gnome too. (I remember that debacle.) I
can't offer a technical explanation. Maybe it can be viewed as similar to
initiating two desktops environments simultaneously.
Gnome doesn't object to an .xinitrc. You might setup script in a runlevel
so when you boot that runlevel from GRUB the .xinitrc is executed.
