Possibly this is an XQuartz problem but the weirdness now includes a full screen xterm starting. This last twist is since the Mac OS X 10.6.4 update.

	Following the directions on the forum, I commented out the bottom of 
the xinitrc script from twm & to the last line of xterm starts. There is 
no change; a small xterm screen still presents after login.

	Is there some other place XQuartz looks for login scripts to start X 
things? I've set XQuartz to start on login and configured it to start 
nothing using the Applications/Customize' feature under the icon. Might 
there be another xinitrc script for XQuartz?
