well <sarcasm> I seriously doubt anyone should be using xinitrc.d method 
for starting X anymore ;) - that's soooo 80's.

alternatively, get something like uxlaunch running, it's meant for 
single-user no-login type systems like netbooks, home desktops etc. and 
supports consolekit (needs a tiny patch to consolekit on most distro's) 
and dbus, etc.
