I don't recall what version of Mac OS X you have, but if it's Leopard or newer, you probably want to remove this "export DISPLAY=:0.0" line from your ~/.profile. Mac OS X Leopard and newer include an auto-start X11 mechanism that sets DISPLAY to the appropriate value for you automatically; you're disabling that mechanism by setting DISPLAY yourself.
