check that your /etc/X11/Xsession file contains the following

<snip>
# use run-parts to source every file in the session directory; we source
# instead of executing so that the variables and functions defined above
# are available to the scripts, and so that they can pass variables to
each
# other
SESSIONFILES=$(run_parts $SYSSESSIONDIR)
if [ -n "$SESSIONFILES" ]; then
  for SESSIONFILE in $SESSIONFILES; do
    . $SESSIONFILE
  done
fi
</snip>

I am running xfree86-common 4.3.0.dfsg.1-7 and it was inserted as a
default setting. check that your version of xfree86-common has this.
IF it doesnt you can wither add it or run the script directly from the
Xsession file
