Yep, despite the name gnome-session doesn't actually run everything
you need to start a gnome session :-). I don't normally run a gnome
session, but something like this may work better for you:


if [ -z "$SSH_AUTH_SOCK" ]
then
   KILL_AGENT=yes
   eval `ssh-agent -s`
fi
if [ -z "$DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS" ]
then
   eval `dbus-launch --exit-with-session --sh-syntax`
fi
gnome-session
if [ "$KILL_AGENT" = "yes" ]
then
   ssh-agent -k
fi

Possibly the dbus-launch is the only really important bit.
