Description of problem:
Simple, the gdm windowmaker session file executes Xsession wmaker instead of
executing window maker directly. The problem is there is now corresponding
Xclients.wmaker but instead Xclients.windowmaker

You can either:
1. have the gdm session file execute the window maker binary instead of Xsession
2. change Xsession wmaker to Xsession windowmaker 
3. mv Xclients.windowmaker Xclients.wmaker

The effect of this bug is that the window maker entry in gdm does not work.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install window maker
2.log out of X
3.choose window maker
4.log in to X


Actual Results:  gnome was executed

Expected Results:  window maker should have run

Additional info:

This is a bad bug since the login is one where people form their first
impressions of red hat. If the login cant even get the right desktop, that says
something to Joe Newbie. I won't make this a severe bug though.
