xset not working on session start

     sleep 10
     xset b 100 440 101 && echo 'bell set'
     xset m 4/1 8  && echo 'mouse set'
     xset dpms 0 0 0 && echo 'dpms set'
) &

putting that in ~/.xsession works, after a 10 second delay, of course.

now it gets weirder... from time to time the bell, dpms and mouse settings 
are reset to their default values. i've noticed that xine will reset the 
bell (?!?!?) when it starts, but i haven't yet figured out what is 
resetting everything else.

any hints for figuring out this one? is there a way to log changes to 
these settings?
