I'm on Arch now (Tanglu got too unstable for my daily use), but I wanted you to know that after a later sddm update this re-appeared, but it was not the chmod on the xsession but seemed some other issue.
Sep 14 2015
My mistake, installed it yesterday 17:32 already and didn't realize it (it was the time when i re-installed the package and did the chmod on my own).

It's definitively in there, check http://packages.tanglu.org/chromodoris-updates/sddm
I still didn't get it by the mirror ... strange (using tanglu.org mirror).
The mirror should need 6h at max to provide the package - highly likely it's less time.

I don't know how to get the package without the mirror providing it. Will check back as soon as I get it by the mirror :-).
Tested in VM and on metal, no issues found when upgrading sddm or using the current version 0.12.0-1tanglu0.1.
Do you have Plymouth installed?
Could you please check if sddm/0.12.0-1tanglu0.1 (due to be installed into the archive) fixes the issue for you?
(actually, this is highest priority, since it's a regression in a stable release)
Wow... That shouldn't happen, I'll look into it...
Re-Opening the bug (see the comment above).
Again, sddm does not boot after the 0.12.0-0tanglu0.5 update. Again had to chmod Xsession manually to make it start.

Marking as fixed, please reopen in case the issue still exists.

It isn't ;-) The real latest version isn't published though, that's why you don't see it in the archive yet.
See the archive acceptance mail and the package's build status. The builders are on heavy load at time, but will prefer building the package. So, it will likely only take a few hours until it's in the -updates archive. Uploads to the updates suites are much slower than updates for the development suites.
sddm/chromodoris-updates,now 0.12.0-0tanglu0.3 amd64 [installed,automatic]

It's already in there, you just don't have the latest version of the package ;-)
Were you affected by this bug as well? ("sddm fails to start after system boot") Because if this issue is resolved, we could probably close the bug report.
Yep, that fixed it.
Why not put that into the post-install just to be safe?
sudo chmod +x /etc/sddm/Xsession
solve the problem for you?
If that fixes it, you only experienced the error because you had the broken package installed previously.
sddm/0.12.0-0taglu0.3 still has the same issue as all other versions since 0.11.0-3tanglu1.1, so the last working version is 0.11.0-3tanglu1.1.
Found an issue in the package, fortunately it was caught before public release. So the current, tested sddm release is now sddm/0.12.0-0tanglu0.3.
Please test if the package sddm/0.12.0-0tanglu0.1 resolves the issue for you (available in the -updates sources).

Okay, there will likely be another SDDM release this weekend, which has really good chance to have this issue fixed or at least improve error reporting.
I will test it here and likely backport it to Tanglu 3.0 (Chromodoris willani).
Aug 31 2015
We will likely ship an updated version of SDDM soon, I just pinged upstream about making a release.
If the issue persists with the new version, we will take this upstream and report a new bug there.

Also this bug report could be of interest

I did a fresh install and I'm experiencing the same issue. In the live session I also had to manually start the session.
