For some reason LP didn't close this bug:

lightdm (0.4.0-0ubuntu3) oneiric; urgency=low

  * debian/control:
    - Make GTK greeters depend on gnome-icon-theme-full (LP: #796793)
  * debian/Xsession:

Actually not fixed; the shell syntax which was used will try to open a file named /etc/X11/Xresources/*.

After updating (oneiric) and restarting lightdm_0.4.2-0ubuntu1 stopped using ~ /. Xresources
Once stood lightdm the PPA for natty and it worked fine.
