I refer you back to my first post, in which I do exactly that. However, you then take it further, to -- finally, I hope -- get past the xauth blockage that had me stumped.
dpkg-reconfigure x11-common

This looks hopeful! Thanks. I'll try it sometime later today and report back.

BTW, your list of desktop environments/session managers excludes "exec ratpoison" (what I do now) and "exec stumpwm" (what I will do when I grow up). How could you. :-)
