What does locale tell you?  Try defining something very simple in
.xsession or .xinitrc, e.g. en_GB should do.

I had a similar problem with fvwm not too long ago and all I had to do
was change my environment settings in /etc/environment in order to be
able to use this window manager again.

Maybe this helps... ?!
