Ya, you are right, that is the correct way. I learn something everyday.

And I do get the Gnome splash screen, so it is doing a gnome-session, I think.
Especially since under twm it tries to start the panels, but when I place them
somewhere, they just disappaer. But then I switch to sawfish or metacity, and I
can them restart gnome-panel.
So far the most reliable thing has been to rename twm and make a link to
metacity called twm.
I have got the x-session-manager correct now....
term106:/home# update-alternatives --config x-session-manager
There are 2 alternatives which provide `x-session-manager'.
+ 1 /usr/bin/kde2
* 2 /usr/bin/gnome-session
Enter to keep the default[*], or type selection number: 2
Using `/usr/bin/gnome-session' to provide `x-session-manager'.
term106:/home/terminal# ls -l /etc/alternatives/x-session-manager
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 22 2002-07-13 21:17
/etc/alternatives/x-session-manager -> /usr/bin/gnome-session
