Shouldn't it be called ~/.Xresources ?
Personally I have the two filenames symbolic linked together, because
some X installations I use seem to like one and some like the other.
Debian seems to only use .Xresources.
I have seen some installations of X that distinguish between the two
names, along the lines of ~/.Xdefaults will completely override the
system wide xrdb settings whereas ~/.Xresources will be merged with
the system ones. (Or was it the other way around?)
