what are files .xsession-errors and .xsession-errors.old can they be deleted?
 
I am trying to upgrade Ubuntu 12.04 to 12.10.
My / is mounted with 10G. Ubuntu is using 6+G.
in checking / file I find .xsession-error is huge.
It is filled with this repeating
'** (nm-applet:2055): WARNING **: Could not create object for /org/freedesktop/NetworkManager/IP6Config/51991: Method "GetAll" with signature "s" on interface "org.freedesktop.DBus.Properties" doesn't exist

Question can I delete this file?

yes, it is just generate/appended to by X and apps using the X resource.

that is masking the problem, though! sounds like you need to chase down the nm-applet issue.
