From 'man xinit'
"An important point is that programs which are run by .xinitrc
should be run in the background if they do not exit right away, so that
they don't prevent other programs from starting up. However, the last
long-lived program started (usually a window manager or terminal
emulator) should be left in the foreground so that the script won't exit
(which indicates that the user is done and that xinit should exit)."
It seems you are getting exactly what you are asking for with an empty
