$ man Xsession

              contains X resources specific to the  invoking  user's  environ-
              ment.   The  settings  are  loaded  with xrdb -merge.  Note that
              $HOME/.Xdefaults is a relic from X Version 10 (and X11R1)  days,
              before  app-defaults files were implemented.  It has been depre-
              cated for over ten years at the time  of  this  writing.   .Xre-
              sources should be used instead.
