Bug#303346: This bug results in potentially lost output

I think it merits consideration to devise a mechanism which
closes and reopens a new error log so that _future_ errors
(i.e. errors which occur after the spamming which caused
.xsession-erros to fill in the first place) could be
captured.  As it stands, Gtk+ spams this file with
'XID collision' messages until the log fills up
and if another component has a problem that actually
causes an error (i.e. browser crash) the user has no idea
clue as to what might have caused it.
