You might need to write your own .xsession that _doesn't_ start a
window manager.  Try:

$ cd
$ mv .xsession .xsession-old
[Might get an error if you don't have one already.]
$ cat > .xsession
exec xterm
^D [That's Control-D.]
$ chmod +x .xsession

And see what happens then.

  He could see the way in, but the other end appeared to be sealed.
