I do not believe that adding auto-detection to the xinit configure script is
going to help much here, people may be running a Xorg build with systemd-logind
capabilities without actually using it, so I believe that if there is something
to fix we need a runtime check, not a buildtime one.

Other then that I've not been following this thread. Is there a bug report
somewhere were the problem is spelled out step by step, including a detailed
analysis of why you believe the startx behavior is the cause ?

If not please file such a bug report here:

And then mail me back with the bug number and I will take a look.
