Bug#527139: /etc/X11/Xsession: does not prevent X server reset during session setup

Package: x11-common
Version: 1:7.3+18
Severity: normal
File: /etc/X11/Xsession



does the X session setup and starts a session.

However, it looks like the X server resets between merging ~/.Xresources
and starting the final application.

the workaround is to start an application beforehand like


It may be possible that another script is normally used to do that but
skimming through Xsession(5) does not reveal any reference to such

If I were to write/package another display manager I would likely need
the Xsession script to perform correctly in absence of any other X client.
