Try this. Edit /etc/ttys thus:

According to the kdm manual you should *not* use the "-nodaemon"
Why do you?
Where does it say that? According to the online docs
'For FreeBSD, edit /etc/ttys and find the line like this:
ttyv8 "/usr/X11R6/bin/xdm -nodaemon" xterm off secure
and edit it to this:
ttyv8 "/usr/local/bin/kdm" xterm on secure'
But that's not the same as saying "don't use -nodaemon".
According to the FreeBSD Handbook
'To enable kdm, the ttyv8 entry in /etc/ttys has to be adapted. The line
should look as follows:
ttyv8 "/usr/local/bin/kdm -nodaemon" xterm on secure'
If you detach the parent process, what happens when the child process dies?
Will the parent respawn another child without initd running?
In any case, I did what the Handbook stated, because I trust that the
FreeBSD developers know what they're doing, and that's what they told the
guys that write the docs to use for kdm. Someone with more knowledge than
I have would have to explain the technical aspects of that choice.
