OK, I see why. The Debian package supplies a
containing the line:
Instead, it should run a script that first sources
xsession file(s) and then execs xmonad.
I propose that:
o the cross-platform standard name
for this script should be "startxmonad"
(/usr/bin/startxmonad on Debian).
o the script should set SESSION_TYPE=xmonad so that
xsession scripts can know that this is an xmonad session.
o the script should first source /etc/xmonad/xsession,
if it exists, then ~/.xsession if it exists.
Debian bug submitted.
