/etc/kde3/kdm/Xsession sources /etc/X11/Xsession, which by default
will read ~/.xsession, *UNLESS* it has an argument (like "sawfish"
or "failsafe" or "twm"). .xsession is just used as a fallback.
Looking at the code I can't see how .xmodmap would be read in any
One way of dealing with this is to take as correct the inference
that one should be using .sawfishrc instead of .xsession, so now I
have to figure out if that provides a sensible way of executing
'xmodmap -e "pointer = 3 2 1 4 5"', probably:
(system "xmodmap -e \"pointer = 3 2 1 4 5\"")
