This is a known bug in xfree86-common- A bug report
has already been filed against the package, so it should be fixed 
soon. Here is an explanation and instructions how to fix it from 
the bug report:


  Package: xfree86-common

  startx fails with a syntax error in /etc/X11/Xsession.
  The following modification fixed the problem for me:
