Do you have any good reason for running [xkg]dm at all?  You don't
need it to run X.  Disable it, then login to X with "nohup startx &

Then when you next exit X, you'll be dropped to a command line login

Instead of "nohup startx & exit", why not just "startx"? Looking at the man and info pages for nohup, I can't figure out what advantage it provides here.
