        This is what I have been doing since my first try at gnome circa
        2002.   Altho in my .xsession I have "exec gnome-session" rather 
        than the full path to the binary.

        As "kline" it looks for the typical "greeter app", can't find
        it, and opens a second login screen.  Once I'm logged in there, 
        things go totally dead.  Finally a pop-up dialog off screen 
        displays what appears to be the contents of ~/.xsession-error.
        From there, things lock up.

        As root, I do get my usual menu strips, but empty.  When I
        right-click (to exec an xterm) the applet says that I'm missing 
        a "launcher".  I'm out of idears.
