Thank you namesake! :)

That's why I thought of diff. Perhaps seeing the lines that differ,
instead of the whole sha-bang, would be easier.

Now I have three other suggestions:

1. Put your machine under init 5 using just XDM. Take a snapshot of its
processes, and do the same under GDM/KDM. Perform the same comparison.

2. Another idea: do this:

a) # ls /etc/rc.d/rc3.d > init3services.txt

b) # ls /etc/rc.d/rc5.d > init5services.txt

then, do the diff stuff as suggested before.

3. Perform the same diff between baseline logs of /var/log/syslog
or /var/log/messages in initlevels 3 and 5.
