I'm not sure how this ever worked, but we never moved this over to athena-session, so it's invoking gnome-session without the relevant 2d arguments. It should probably just be a symlink, since the functionality currently depends on the name of the .desktop file, not anything else.

Looking at this a bit more, there are a couple of issues:

  • Our nocalls xsession code is various kinds of wrong.
  • Lightdm completely ignores ~/.dmrc, because it doesn't have tokens when trying to read it
  • We can't clear the cache because we're not root.

_However_, lightdm will not consult its cache unless a session type is never passed (e.g. autologin). Our greeter does not support this, and always passes a session type, so we don't care.
