  XDG_CONFIG_DIRS keeps getting expanded every login

Status in gnome-session package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Ubuntu Version: 18.04
  gnome-session-common Version: 3.28.1-0ubuntu1

  What's expected to happen: $XDG_CONFIG_DIRS is the same on every login
  What happens instead: $XDG_CONFIG_DIRS gets expanded on every login

  It seems that $XDG_CONFIG_DIRS gets expanded by two entries on every

  On first login it looks like this:


  On second login it gets expanded by the same two entries in front:


  On third login, two more entries get added:


  At this point Visual Studio Code, which lead me to this, no longer
  starts and just throw a Segmentation fault/Core Dump.

  I suspect this behaviour is triggered by
  /etc/profile.d/ adding more stuff to
  $XDG_CONFIG_DIRS on every login.
