You can put a loop in .xinitrc that restarts dwm automatically.
I have:

while true
do
        echo "temp $((`sysctl -n hw.acpi.thermal.tz0.temperature`/10-273))C batt `sysctl -n hw.acpi.battery.life`%"
        sleep 1
done | while true; do
        dwm
done

which works fine with xdm.

Cheers,
Johannes
