While that's true, it doesn't make much difference with respect to the
problem because fvwm2 was the last line of the script anyway.

One difference it *does* make is that not exec-ing it means that
there's an extra shell sitting there throughout *this* invocation of
fvwm2.

But, while posting .xsession on its own might make sense if you're
starting X simply with startx, it only gives a fraction of the story
if you're using a DM. This is presumably why the OP gets two WM
instances (the DM starts one, .xsession starts the other), and I don't
have a clue which is the "right" one with the ssh stuff in it.
