Also checked version 9.0.0rc1. xTimerStart() is missing there too.

What I did:
1) Search for xTimerCreate(), so I can find the name of the variable in
which the timer's handle is stored, which is xTimer. Above the call to
xTimerCreate() I see the comment:
/* Create the software timer, but don't start it yet. */
2) Search for where the xTimer variable is used, where I find the
/* Reset the timer if a key has been pressed. The timer will write
mainVALUE_SENT_FROM_TIMER to the queue when it expires. */
if( _kbhit() != 0 )
/* Remove the key from the input buffer. */
( void ) _getch();
/* Reset the software timer. */
xTimerReset( xTimer, portMAX_DELAY );
