I've just tried the inverse, installing seahorse and seahorse-plugins (since
the latter mumbles something about ssh in it's description). Rinse, repeat, and
the problem remains.
Some part of the xsession startup echoes various environment variables on stderr and they end up in ~/.xsession-errors:
/etc/gdm/Xsession: Beginning session setup...
