XDM, XSM and not getting the proper environment

I've been using XDM for quite a while.  After installing Fedora Core 6,
XDM seems to be behaving differently.  When I first logged in, it didn't
seem to use my ~/.Xclients.  I read a little and discovered that it was
looking for xsm.  I installed it and created a ~/.xsession file which
had the same lines as my .Xclients had.

Things somewhat work, however when I log in my fonts are not what they
should be, and some environment settings are not getting set.

Using GDM things work as they should.

What changed, and how do I modify my config so that XDM works as it did?
