I have on my system .xinitrc.d/90-kde.sh

. /sw/bin/init.sh
export KDEWM=quartz-wm
exec /sw/bin/startkde &> /tmp/kde.log

but, it does not start kde - you can't even start any kde program within a 
terminal, if I use my old .xinitrc - it does load the kde manager and all kde 
programs are running in a terminal.

. /sw/bin/init.sh

export KDEWM=quartz-wm
/sw/bin/startkde>/tmp/kde.log 2>&1

any idea? both files have the same rights and ownership (644)
