I had also given up on running xdm with xfce on 10.0.  I copied a
running configuration from 9.1 but it refused to work with 10.0.  I
tried just a bare xterm and jwm and both work with xdm, so it appears to
be xfce.  Similar to others, I just have my .bash_profile run startx
automatically, but in my case only when `tty` = /dev/ttyv3.
