OK, thanks.

If my understanding is correct, it means that this peice of script will
be responsible of launching i3 (replacing line =fvwm >/tmp/fvwm.log
2>&1=), right?

In my case, I rely on any "dm* /etc/init.d/ script (like xdm, tdm,
lightdm, tdm, gdm3, etc.) to do so.

I have dig into X11 init sequence, looks like a Hell to me, like the
sourcing (or not) of /etc/profile for X login sessions...
My feeling is that we never know who is responsible for what, you read
cryptic documentation, you configure things, and in the end nothing
works like expected because each *dm* scripts has its own hard-coded
