Urf.  I was stuck thinking globally, not locally:

Xsession: X session started for [user] at Sun Oct 30 02:35:33 EST 2005
ls: /etc/X11/Xsession.d: Permission denied

Thanks so much for showing me the nose in front of my face!  The directory had 
700 permissions for some reason.  I can't believe I missed this for six 

OK, that solved it.  Wonderful.  Thanks again!
