"Selective execution" is not a feature of X initialization
procedures. ;-)

Could it be that there's a $PATH issue? Or permisison issue?

I'm using the "cargo cult" method of the "cascaded approach"
which has been working so far. All commands are in ~/.xinitrc,
and my ~/.xsession looks like this:

In ~/.xsession:

	#!/bin/csh
	source ~/.cshrc
	exec ~/.xinitrc

In ~/.xinitrc:

	#!/bin/sh
	[ -f ~/.xmodmaprc ] && xmodmap ~/.xmodmaprc
	numlockx
	xsetroot -solid rgb:3b/4c/7a
	xset b 100 1000 15 &
	xset r rate 250 30 &
	xset s off &
	xset -dpms &
	exec wmaker

Note that I'm using the C shell as my default dialog shell
(and login shell).

All commands in .xinitrc will be executed after xdm login.
In the past, there were calls do xrandr, which I removed
because it works now by settings in a partial xorg.conf
file. :-)

By the way, the "cargo cult" also includes that both files
~/.xinitrc and ~/.xsession are +x attributes (executable).
