Problem with xscreensaver & xdm


I've installed xscreensaver and added line:

	xscreensaver -silent -timeout 5 -cycle 5 &

in the /etc/X11/Xsession. But it fails to start with message:

	Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
	Xlib: Client is not authorized to connect to Server
	Error: Can't open display: :0

I use xdm to start X. If startx is used instead, everything is OK.
Another strange thing with regard to xdm is that SHELL variable is not set.
Any help is appreciated.

Best regards.
