FWIW, latest xorg-server 1.16.0 here, recently upgraded (as it'd have to
be, because it only recently came out). No problems to report, but as I
said, I do the text login, startx with a kde xsession setting, thing
here, and don't even have a *dm installed, so if there were issues with
it and *dm, I'd never know it.
But it does seem to me that your issue is likely related to logind
console session dynamic permissions. Obviously those logging into a text
login session and running startx from there have a login session already
going when they run startx, with console perms already set for the
existing login. That contrasts significantly with the *dm login case,
where X is already running and at least basic input perms would be
necessary in ordered to be even to login graphically at all, which seems
to be your problem. I just don't know how to fix it since the little *dm
experience I have is over a decade outdated now, well before systemd's
logind solution and indeed, before hal and the like as well, so
literally, generations of solutions have come and gone since then. =:^\
