Are you sure that ~/.xsession-errors provide logs, if the log in fails?

I would take a look at the display manager's log files.
For e.g. lightdm they are in the directory  /var/log/lightdm/ .
Maybe  grep EE /var/log/Xorg.*  shows something useful, but I suspect
most interesting are the display manager's and its greeter's log files.
