Shouldn't this bug be broadened a bit? Allowing .xsession-errors to grow indefinitely without any kind of log rotation in place is a design flaw. The file should be rotated and old files compressed. A gzipped >5GiB log file takes up about 20MiB on disk.

Attaching a gzipped log file which repeats, among other things, the string "Authentication deferred - ignoring client message" about 110000 times a second towards the end. Something else is repeated loads of times somewhere in the middle as well. This should not be allowed to happen.
