Yes, Greg. Sorry for my English. I never learn it at school, I just
pick it with time...

Greg, I care less about what should and what should not. .xsession is
ignored in stretch (but not before), so I found out that .xsessionrc
is not, so I renamed. Regardless of my .xsession/.xsessionrc file
something is calling for a x-window-session without the
personalisation that I want.

If you know a way to still have my personalisation with the system
call of the x-window-manager I am only ears. 

If I comment out fvwm2 call in .xessionrc file, I get a fvwm2 session
without the ssh-agent. So all the ssh calls from the fvwm menu will
ask for password. Not even for the passphrase.

So, do you know what is the Debian standard way to use
xdm/fvwm2/ssh-agent combo in stretch? Before stretch all is working
well with .xsession file...

Thank you,
