There is (IIRC) a subtle difference between these two: the former will
attempt to execute ~/.xsession, whereas the latter will attempt to execute
~/.xinitrc.  If you have neither of these files it shouldn't make much
difference, but if you have one, or have both but are different, it
might not result in what the user expects.  (It's obviously an easy fix
if you know about it, but not at all obvious if you don't.)
