Occasional xsession-errors on login

Postby 0x2620 » Sat Sep 09, 2017 8:11 pm

Once every 10 or so logins I get an error that my session lasted less than 10 seconds, and that I should check ~/.xsession-errors. Here's the output of .xsession-errors:

/etc/mdm/Xsession: Beginning session setup...

Any idea why this happens?
