My error.  I do this from a bash script, and have the variable XCLIENTS
defined in the script.  I just cut and pasted from the script, and
didn't notice the problem.  XCLIENTS is just ~/.Xclients, which is
where X (startx) expects to find the desktop definition.  It has been a
long time, but I think I found it somewhere in the X documentation.

For execution from a login shell it should be 
echo 'exec startlxde' > ~/.Xclients
