Haven't RTFA, but IIRC, in .xinitrc, you are executing as a subprocess
(so envars don't get passed down to shells) and you might not have a
controlling tty, and certain things just don't work for multiple reasons.

(For example, I had issues getting ssh-agent/ssh-add/ssh-askpass and
 gpg-agent to run and do the right thing)
