Just to further muddy the waters:
kdm has its own system with the other *dm's, where it sets the default
manager ... I'm unsure as to whether it registers as an x-s-m or not.
KDE is definitely a session manager rather than a window manager ... if
something's going to register as a window manager, it'd have to be kwin,
the component of KDE that actually *is* a window manager.

How does GNOME do it?
