I'm still having the same problem on FreeBSD 3.2. The interesting
things is, my window manager is started via Gnome, and no matter what
I do, I *cannot* get Gnome to start any other window manager. If I
change window managers in the control center, save my session and
restart X, it comes up still in Sawfish. I found the
~/.gnome/default.wm file and changed it there, but the same thing
happens and the file gets rewritten back to what it was.

Enlightenment and twm work fine when I switch into them with gnomecc,
and so does Sawfish if I switch back to it (or kill it and restart
gnome-wm). But on Startup, Sawfish always comes up despite my best
efforts to the contrary, and it always displays those mangled borders.
