Description From 2002-01-31 22:50:19
Why not to make a separate little script /etc/X11/xinit.d/ssh-agent that does
the same thing with ssh-agent as Xsession now and is provided by
openssh-clients?

I see now that the bug report was not eleborate: the way /etc/X11/xinit.d/*
scripts are called from Xsession doesn\'t allow the requested change because
they are not sourced, but executed in the background, so the chnages in the
environment made by the scripts will not be saved.

Maybe the requested feature doesn\'t fit well in the policy of xinit.d/
scripts, so it isn\'t a bug.
