Are you sure ?
The XServer is not very visible, it just shows an icon on the taskbar.
In the far past it was also starting an Xterm and that was a more
visible presence of the XServer
What is the final portion of the startxwin log ?
Have you by chanche a .startxwinrc in your home directory ?
and /etc/X11/xinit/startxwinrc identical ?

The hiding of the icon is a bit misleading the first time
anyone run the XServer
