I don't think it is standard to necessarily use the .Xclients.  It may 
also use the .xinitrc or the .xsession.  On my box (RedHat Linux 5.1)
it is the .xsession.  With RedHat Linux, I think it has changed across 
releases.  You might try using one of these other files.  I am running 
1.5b4 with xdm without any problems.
