I've looked for my .xsession-errors, and found out that

Post Scriptum

As you can see xrdb is not installed... and it is not on the repository

It's source can be found in: http://www.x.org/releases/X11R7.5/src/app/xrdb-1.0.6.tar.bz2

And here is the spec for it:
Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]

<release version="1.0.6" revision="1" branch="testing">

<cmd>make -j 2</cmd>

</archive>
</script>
</build>
</release>
</releases>
</package>

Also, saw that gdm is not creating the /var/cache/gdm directory

So it needs to be created by hand:
Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
sudo mkdir -p /var/cache/gdm && sudo chown -hR gdm:gdm /var/cache/gdm

We should rather remove the calls to xrdb, it's only needed for legacy software, if I remember correctly.

This should be fixed with the next build of gnome-settings-daemon in testing.

It's fixed now and it makes gnome start 1 sec faster, because it is not looking for a missing binary (and then doing try loops to do something else)

Thanks
