Well you are essentially correct . startx starts a normal r5 session but
runlevel claims that the system is still at rl3. Which seems strange to
me. However one thing that does not happen (on my machine at least)
nm-applet does not start bringing up wireless. Maybe this should be
expected that the wireless is not active but I expect that I could
start it by editing the proper connection.
I must make a correction. If I run startx as a simple user I can connect to my default\
wireless connection if I enter the keyring passwd. As long as the proper services are running rh3
vs. rl5 is irrelevant.
