Well I posted before I could successfully run startx and the post you
replied to was AFTER I could successfully run startx.  In some ways it may
have helped people with similar issues or people searching archives later.

Actually, I run FreeBSD 4.6.2 exclusively on my home PC so this doesn't
directly help, however, you've reminded me that in some way I can probably
just do a `ps auxww | grep -i gnome` and wade through it to find out what's
running when.  Thanks after all!
