An .xsessionrc file should NOT invoke the window manager or session
manager.  .xsessionrc is read *in addition* to (before) the code that
runs your chosen, or the default, session or window manager.

An .xsession file SHOULD invoke a window manager or session manager,
because it completely replaces the system-wide stuff.  But only if
you use a "Debian X session".  Not if you use a GNOME session, or anything
else.  In those cases, your .xsession file may be completely ignored.
