Sorry about the late reply, I was hoping someone who had the same
machine might respond.
The only thing I can suggest to try is adding
to .xinitrc just before it runs the window manager. Otherwise, please
ask on the freebsd-x11 at FreeBSD.org mailing list. I'm sure it can work,
just don't know why it is not working now.
