Look into ~/.xsession-errors, maybe there's more info.

And BTW, my ~/.dmrc is 600:
-rw------- 1 jrschulz jrschulz 37 2006-08-09 10:46 .dmrc

Antoher possiblity: delete the file and log in again (after choosing the
session you like).

There's no need for that. You can still Alt-Fn to a regular console and
use that.
