Hi Ali,
To me it sounds rather like your session exists now with a killall
instead of <something else that only kills the startx process> before.

Did you change something related to that recently? You could try to
check that hypothesis (I don’t know exactly how, maybe running some
additional forked process in your initrc and see if it gets killed when
you exit?).
