If I disable slim in /etc/ttys and start it via /usr/local/etc/rc.d/slim I can sign on and everything works except the mouse, and in terminal sessions I start my path is wrong.

Okay, I think I figured out where the path I'm getting when using slim is coming from. I never noticed that slim.conf has a default path setting. In my slim.conf I have:

default_path        ./:/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/bin

It would be nice to have it honor the path in /etc/login.conf but it's simple enough to set the path in slim.conf to the same. Now, if I can just figure out why my mouse won't work when I sign on via slim, but works if I start X via startx ...
