Is the only difference between your attempts the gnome-session version?
The only change between -1 and -2 is in the session saving code, not in
startup code.

As both were uploaded on different architectures, this may be a problem
of missing or buggy build-dependencies. If you have some time, it would
be nice to check whether rebuilding the package changes anything.
