Okay, thanks, this is what I was looking for.  The catch is in "most
recent distributions".  I was looking through RH 6.2 and in that they have
taken out most references to any user files - in fact they only get called
if something goes wrong.  After reading your email I looked at KRUD 7.1
and found that it has been changed back to read .xsession, and I'm sure
other versions use similar files as you say.

Cheers, Rob
