I can kill Xorg via a simple "killall Xorg", but how can I prevent it from starting up again? To auto-start Gnome, I have gdm in my rc.conf, so is that what's causing it to restart? Is rc.conf being run each time? I'd like to be able to kill Xorg and drop back to a plain VC.
kill gdm then kill xorg
I need real, proper pen and paper for this.

You probably have gdm in your DAEMONS array. rc.conf is not being run each time, but gdm is still running when you kill X, and it will re-start X automatically. That's why you have to kill gdm too.
