Hi and welcome to the forum.If the only difference is whether or not you use a login manager, it's probably ConsoleKit related. For example, SLiM (and I think GDM/KDM too and probably others, as well), already start it, so you don't need another ck session in your ~/.xinitrc (see the first note from the SLiM wiki page). Which login manager do you use?
