This is normal. It only reads anything you send at /dev/xconsole. You
can have X start this automatically, with a little tweek (look around in
/etc/X11), and you can get your logs piped to it with a little tweek of
syslog.conf. The reason why xconsole exists should be clear now.
It sounds like you're looking for a terminal program. Try xterm, rvxt,
or some other similarly named app and see if that's what you expected.
