With kdm (which I am running without KDE), it should run
~/.xsession or ~/.Xsession. However, it doesn't. I've been rooting
around /etc/X11/Xsession and /etc/X11/Xsession.d/ and I'm puzzled:

.xmodmap. They are referenced in /etc/X11/Xsession, which kdm does

/etc/X11/Xsession.d/), though STARTUP gets re-defined as the window
manager (i.e. $STARTUP becomes "sawfish").
