Oh, interesting! You're right - I did not realize that would happen.

And that was indeed the solution, although I made a mistake at the time. I'd initially put that line in bashrc instead while trying things, then saw that bash_profile sourced bashrc so assumed it'd do the same. I missed, however, that bashrc returned earlier in the file if running in a noninteractive shell, so my additions were never reached while spawning the X session.

Thank you for the help, and sorry for the run-around!
