 The xlogin widget, which xdm presents, offers the familiar
       login and password prompts.

       After the user logs in, xdm runs the  Xstartup  script  as
       root.
       Then  xdm runs the Xsession script as the user.  This sys-
       tem session file may do some additional startup and  typi-
       cally  runs the .xsession script in the user's home direc-
       tory.  When the Xsession  script  exits,  the  session  is
       over.

Yup, that's right, you could've found that out by reading the manual.
