User-Agent: Mozilla/4.72 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.19 i586)
Description of problem:
-> gnome will start up, but not having any WM running.
An strace on "gnome-session" will reveal, that "/usr/bin/gnome-wm" is NOT used,
but "enlightenment" with various paths directly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1) Install gnome + kde
2) rm -r ~/.gnome* (to reset everything)
Expected Results: gnome-session (which is called by xinit) should use gnome-wm
to probe for a WM.
This is fixed in 7.x series
