| login via xdm
| fire up xterm
| wpa_supplicant -B -i iwn0 -c...
| dhcpcd -L4 iwn0
When you exit xdm (or the kernel) will do a session reset, and kill everything
running in that same session (dhcpcd probably protects itself, I don't think
wpa_supplicant does that).
| open a terminal (ctl-alt-f1), login as root, and observe that iwn0 is down.
| ifconfig iwn0 up
| and all is well - the connection becomes active and a lease is acquired with no further intervention.
Start wpa_supplicant (and dhcpcd) from /etc/rc rather than by hand. You can
run wpa_gui (from pkgsrc) in the xdm session if you need (or want) to interact
with wpa_supplicant to get the link up - it isn't needed that wpa_supplicant bring
up the link from rc.d, just that it be started from there rather than from the xdm
