Thanks (also for the other details, which might be useful for upstream, 
should we need to pass it on to them later).

Possibly there is some info in the various logfiles below ~/sugar - in 
there should also be a config file where you can uncomment a debug flag 
to get more verbose logs.

Color and gender selection happens only on initial login - that is a 
feature, not a bug.  But then you were supposed to enter the Sugar 
environment, not be thrown back to the login manager, obviously.

Can you try remove/rename ~/.sugar and then login not via a custom 
.xsession shell call, but using the desktop entry (i.e. by selecting 
Sugar in the popup window in LightDM.  If using the default Gtk+ 
interface then that should be available in the top right corner. If that 
crashes too then there is some bug in the package - else I lean towards 
dismissing this as a user error (an undocumented way to start Sugar), 
but I can be persuaded to try dig deeper if you want to help explore it
