About the slim annoyance, I managed to get it 'fixed' by calling slim in 
/etc/rc.d/rc.4 like this:

# Try to use SLiM login manager:
if [ -x /usr/bin/slim ]; then
exec /usr/bin/slim >& /dev/null

It's interesting to note that in 13.0 I didn't get the 'respawning too 
fast' warning over and over again.
