Thank you for your help, I was wrong footed by the man page which suggested 
using .xsession not .xsessionrc so I guess the man page needs an update. Looks 
like it is now OK after changing to .xsessionrc.

Also sorry for the double posting, I has DNS problems which caused me to be 
unsubscribed and I didn't see the replies.
