Have you tried starting up X with something like "startx > ~/.xerrors

Then you can bring up a terminal and tail -f ~/.xerrors.

Anyway, this is what works for me (on one line):

Exec "Stop animations" exec sh -c "killall xlock ; killall xearth ;
killall xfish ; killall xsnow ; 'Module \"\" asetroot'"

Hope that helps.
