i was wondering if anyone using xdm gets /etc/X11/xdm/Xstartup loaded
when you log in?

man page sais "After the user logs in, xdm runs the Xstartup script as
root.", so between Xsetup and Xsession. but my /var/log/xdm.log only

xdm info (pid 803): sourcing /etc/X11/xdm/Xsetup_0
xdm info (pid 803): sourcing /etc/X11/xdm/GiveConsole
xdm info (pid 820): executing session /etc/X11/xdm/Xsession

i also added `echo "wtf" > /tmp/wtf` to /etc/X11/xdm/Xstartup, just to
be sure (before the exec sessreg...) and /tmp/wtf doesnt get created.
