Path in non-login shells

I just installed using the 0.7-beta cd.  When running X i noticed that my path for non-login shells only includes :/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/usr/ucb
This really confuses me :?

EDIT: nevermind, it seems to be fixed now.  Logging out hadnt fixed anything, but killing xdm seemed to

EDIT #2: well the problem came back sad  It seems to be related to starting in runlevel 5.  If i boot in runlevel 3,login and startx, I have a proper PATH.  If i boot in runlevel 5, login through xdm, i dont have a correct PATH. Does anyone have an idea?  (I would start xdm through rc.conf but there doesnt seem to be a xdm daemon in /etc/rc.d)
