Same problem here with Debian and fvwm95.  The only solution I found, was 
replacing the xterm (or other undesired program) entries in ~/.gnome/session 
by /bin/true, so that /bin/true is invoked instead of xterm in the next 
session.  For that trick to work you have to leave gnome and make the 
modifications from a text console (urgh!).

A bug somewhere in the session manager must be causing this, but I have no 
idea about X session management to attempt to fix it by myself.
