I think xinit just initializes X (go figure, eh?) while startx loads up a window manager as well.

So either startx runs a different config file, or it loads a config file that xinit doesn't have?

Not running FreeBSD at the moment (axed it because Vista refused to be on the second partition. Will probably be reinstalling soon in a dual boot.) and I'm quite rusty with X. Embarrassingly so!
