That's what I had been doing until now (choosing "default" as my login type), 
but then I wanted to be able to change the wm upon login...

Thanks. I guess there is no "legal" way for a user to do what I want to do 
(set an environment variable without sacrificing window manager choosing).
Should I file a bug? If so, on which package? xfree86-common? [kwg]dm?

I'll look if I can have the script installed. Or maybe I'll just teach myself 
some Qt or gtk and write my own post-login window manager selector.

in happy anarchy. I am chaos. I am alive, and I tell you that you are free.
