I'm not too familiar with hp stuff, but....  what does your .xinitrc
look like?  As far as I know, when you log in, your .xinitrc is execed
by your login process.  So in your .xinitrc, you need to make sure
that "exec afterstep" is the last command.  That way, when afterstep
ends, .xinitrc ends, and your session ends.

Summary: make sure that the window manager's process is the login


If this isn't it, please post your .xinitrc or other relevant configs.
