Quite some time ago, several releases ago, X always ran and didn't quit
when users logged out, and restart when they logged in.  There would be
problems for some people, as things would screw up with X running
continuously.

Now, it is restarted when someone logs in and out.

GDM has its own X/graphics server (with its own settings, if you want).
And it looks like your X session is started separately after logging
into GDM (i.e. it's started new, not a handover from the login screen to
an active session).
