Bug#367117: gdm: X startup scripts are a mess

FWIW I have switched the gdm Xsession script from the gdm supplied one
to the x11-common supplied one.
This script is much simpler and works better for me as the .xsessionrc
is run after session setup so I can run an xterm from the script and
it gets the correct colors and fonts. However, if I wanted to do
additional setup the .xprofile as used by the gdm Xsession might be
better as the programs started from the Xsession scripts would see the
changes I have done in .xprofile.
