"Xsession: unsupported number of arguments (2); falling back to default session."

I was constantly getting this error when login to KDE using KDM. Finally I traced the problem through /etc/X11/Xsession which was sourcing files in /etc/X11/Xsession.d/ of which one had this error message. I altered it to output the arguments it was getting and they were $1: show-all-if-ambiguous $2: on. This is a command in my ~/.bashrc. So I commented it out and low and behold, problem solved.

Moral to the story, put all set commands into ~/.inputrc file.
