I see the following in the xsession-error log:

/usr/bin/icewm-session: /usr/bin/icewm-session: cannot execute 
binary file

The file is chmod 755 and works fine from startx.

I get a similar error message when trying to use twm:

/usr/bin/twm: /usr/bin/twm: cannot execute binary file

The problem affects root as well as non-root accounts.
