Greetings, all.
The title says it all. I recently updated my -CURRENT system, which had been previously starting x11/cinnamon-session, x11/cinnamon-desktop, and x11/cinnamon without issue. I now receive the following dialog error when starting cinnamon-session
Code:
Failed to load session "cinnamon"
Googling against that error, brings up many, old references to the error. But all of them are for Linux. I have really grown accustomed to this desktop, and would really like to continue to use it. Anyone else seen this error? Any possible hints for a cure? There is no information in either Xorg.0.log, or /var/log/messages that would indicate any trouble. In case it isn't already clear; this is run from .xinitrc; see startx(1).

Thank you, for anything that might help!
