.profile?! That'd be bad, yes, since it's getting run as part of the setup
for X server startup, and the xset causes X server startup, which runs
xset, which tries to start the X server, ... see the problem?

If you want to run it during X startup, create an executable script

    #! /bin/sh
    xset -b
