I've now since found out that gnome-wm isn't running at all, which I
figure it should be. If I run it manually, then lo and behold,
enlightenment starts up. I think the problem is when I "save session",
gnome-wm doesn't get put in the session file for it to be restored on the
next X session. I looked in my ~/.gnome/session file and it wasn't in
there, but it *is* in the default /usr/local/share/gnome/default.session
file, so something is going wrong somewhere...
Any ideas appreciated
