You should grep for gdm not xdm: you log with ereased environment informations

<notice -- Jan 25 21:52:43.168701000> service xdm start
<notice -- Jan 25 21:52:43.216627000> startproc: execve (/usr/sbin/gdm) [...]
<notice -- Jan 25 21:52:43.258469000> service xdm done
<notice -- Jan 25 21:52:43.518884000> startproc: execve (/sbin/auditd) [...]
+ '[' -x /etc/X11/xdm/keytable ']'
+ /etc/X11/xdm/keytable
+ test -x /etc/X11/xdm/TakeDevices
+ /etc/X11/xdm/TakeDevices

as you can see if you have look on /etc/init.d/xdm the /etc/X11/xdm/TakeDevices
only will be called if startproc is not able to start the gdm.

Make sure that you're using the latest sysvinit package and retry as there
was a small bug which only hurts if and only if a partition was mounted

If this does not help you should investigate why gdm fails or return
with an exit status not equal to zero. You may add the option -v to
startproc, then it will report the pid of the process id of the gdm
(which could be the pid of the parent of the gdm deamon as).
