I use the xlaunch program and have it set to start when I log in.
It can start programs for you, if you want anything started from
the beginning, but you can have it run no programs and simply wait
for any X programs to come along.
If you run xlaunch with no arguments it pops up a short interactive
GUI for setting up the configuration. And of course "man xlaunch"
will tell you more.
