Sounds like the session manager isn't running. The session manager
creates the confirm dialog, if the panel can't find out what the
session manager is, it just quits. Depending on local configuration,
this causes X to quit.

I being to wonder if the xinitrc that is being executed is the one you
think is being executed.
