Description of problem:
My ~/.Xclients is never sourced. It is executable, but not used.
It has exec /usr/bin/startxfce4, and I can otherwise start xfce4 from GDM... but I can't "default boot" from GDM and get .Xclients to be used.
This is major breakage of 20+ years of X history. ~/.Xstartup was for "startx", ~/.xinitrc was for xdm/gdm/kdm/*dm, and ~/.Xclients was for both.... surely that hasn't changed?
