 I had that happen too; what it turned out to be was that in my
~/.xsession script, everything got backgrounded, and when the script
ends, so does the X session.  You have to background everything but
the last program, which keeps the session open until you close it.

 For that, you can use the Window Manager, or something like
'unclutter' or 'xautolock'.
