How are you brining up X? startx or gdm? With either one ~/.xsession
is run. It is a shell script, and be sure _NOT_ to background the WM
or session mamager you use -- once xsession terminates you are logged
out (if you use gdm, you get a shell back if you used startx). Mine
and I use gnome's config to specify the WM.
