This is a property of your .xsession file, or if you don't have one
the default one.
It looks like nowadays the default xsession file is
xrdb -load $HOME/.Xresources
and I don't know enough about how xsm works to find its default
config, but my guess would be that it isn't opening login shells and
perhaps it should be.
