This works!

I tried this even if the above worked. I can't log in as a different
formerly or newly created user.

Because other users can't log in via GDM but startx with
gnome-session in ~/.xinitrc works, I guess GDM is responsible for
the failure. But as I wrote even installing the old version of GDM
didn't change anything. So what might be wrong here?
